Thank you for visiting my official website at philvelez.com.

I am a communication professional with a master’s degree in corporate communication from Baruch College of the City University of New York.  I am a communication consultant for two Latino restaurants in Brooklyn, NY, a communications marketing manager for a community college, and a blogger managing several websites. I also offer writing and communication/social media marketing consulting services through an incorporated business and company blog.

My professional areas of expertise include the following: 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 more than 15 years. I earned a bachelor’s degree in communication media management from the State University of New York at New Paltz and received a certificate in paralegal studies from Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus.

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,

Phil Velez
