Catfish Media – a multi-service editorial, public relations, media strategy and events agency.

Catfish aims to stir it up, agitate the murky waters and rouse the sleepers, cutting through the market with your message. I do this through lucid, direct, inventive communications. I’m low on jargon and big on clear, clean, elegant storytelling.
