I love making technology work for small businesses and explaining things in a way that can make sense to everyone!

Radio taught me how to engage with an audience in quick and bite-sized information tidbits.  After a 20+ years working on-air in Syracuse as Dee Collins and as an Award-Winning Marketing Director for news station WSYR, I now use that skill to help business owners find their way around technology.

My experience includes working on business social media pages, websites, Facebook and Google ads, business photography, videos and voiceover, and on-camera talent.

Early in my career I was an internet pioneer and was part of the team that founded and managed Sybercuse.com, an award-winning Syracuse city site run by Cox Media in 1998. With that experience, I then combined my love of technology and radio on the national stage at Westwood One where I was a top sales and marketing manager. My roles included being a leader of projects involving radio stations and rollouts of new engineering, satellite, IP phone, and technology platforms.

My business Bright Ideas was founded in 1995 and currently, I have a wide variety of businesses that I work with including Hansen’s Advisory Services, College Planning Associates, The Syracuse Auto Show, and other small businesses around CNY.  Check out some of my links below!
