More about what I do:

I am a world-class, New York City battle-tested public relations specialist. Thompson served as Assistant Director of Public Relations for Jazz at Lincoln Center for almost a decade. I was brought in to help launch the organization’s new facilities in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle in 2004. I also served as Publicist for Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. During that time, I established himself as a leading publicist in the entertainment field, garnering praise from peers and music professionals alike. I began my own flourishing PR business in 2013: www.scottthompsonpr.com.
I support the JJA because
There is strength in numbers.
