Founder of Jeff Rutherford Media Relations, co-founder of APPetite PR. I’ve been working in public relations/media relations for 16+ years. I work with technology, digital advertising, and media companies helping them to tell their story via the media. I’m passionate about technology, gadgets, and the impact of technology on traditional media – especially book publishing.
After working at multiple New York City public relations agencies, I launched my own PR consulting business in 2006.
I’m an expert content marketer, and I develop and create extensive content for my clients – content that helps them meet their business goals such as finding new business leads and new clients. I write bylined articles, case studies, and white papers, and I create podcasts for my clients.
I record the APPetite App Marketing podcast to discuss the strategies and tactics of marketing mobile apps. I record the Reading & Writing podcast and I interview writers and authors about their books. I have published 50+ eBooks via my small publishing company – Delabarre Publishing.
When I’m not working or spending time with my family, one of my hobbies is quilting. I’m a member of QuiltGuy, an online discussion group of male quilters. We have regular quilting retreats. Here’s a photo album of some of my quilts.
I have a BA in Journalism from the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. I worked at newspapers in Georgia, Texas, and Louisiana, and as a literary agent at the Denise Marcil Literary Agency in New York City, before entering the public relations-marketing industry.
A native of Macon, Georgia, I live in Northampton, Massachusetts. I spend my time parenting my two sons, doing CrossFit, quilting, and singing karaoke every chance I get.
