Tin Star Media Services Philosophy (In a Nutshell)

It’s always better to shoot straight and focus on one’s strengths and experience rather than try to be all things to everyone.

Tin Star Media is not intended to be a full service, one-stop-shop or an “integrated marketing communications” firm and you can expect honesty if your project doesn’t fall within one of the areas of expertise listed below. Over-promising and under-delivering serves neither of us well.

The good news is, over the last 10+ years, I’ve developed excellent relationships with a very diverse group of very talented individuals and companies from all over. If your project is not a good fit, I’ll be honest with you about it and do what I can to help you find what you need.
