Thank you for visiting my official website at philvelez.com.
I am a marketing and account manager for an information technology company servicing small to mid-sized businesses in the New York City area. I am also a communication consultant for a Latino restaurant in Brooklyn, a notary public, a citizen journalist covering local politics, and a blogger managing several websites. I also offer writing and communication/social media consulting services through a business blog.
My areas of professional expertise include successful and positive interaction with clients and customers, the organization and dissemination of public information, and the supervision and management of personnel. I was a researcher for a news association and a public relations firm, and have been writing for print and the web for about 15 years. I earned a bachelor’s degree in communication media management, hold a master’s degree in corporate communication, and received a certificate in paralegal studies.
I enjoy history, law, politics, fraternity/sorority life, and Puerto Rican/Latino culture. In my spare time I serve as the alumni historian of a multicultural fraternity and volunteer for political campaigns in New York City.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or comments. I also welcome suggestions for future blog posts and opportunities for communication-related consulting projects.
All the best,
