Colin Baugh, Principal, Emblem Public Relations
Colin brings more than fifteen years of experience both as a public relations professional in food and beverage, travel and hospitality and consumer products and as a radio personality.
He cut his teeth working with some of Seattle’s best restaurants including Canlis, Matt’s In the Market and Tilth before expanding into travel and tourism heading up national media outreach on behalf of the Louisiana State Office of Tourism after the BP Spill. His client roster now includes some of the best beverage brands on Earth from twice-filtered premium olive juice and local craft spirits distilled from estate-grown products to the fastest growing gin in the world and the world’s oldest distilled spirits brand.
This experience has led to the development of relationships with top local, regional and national consumer media such as the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Los Angeles Magazine, TimeOut LA, LA Confidential, NBC LA, Fox LA, Orange County Register, Modern Luxury, Playboy, BUZZFEED, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Entrepreneur, The Daily Meal, Robb Report, Food & Wine, Imbibe, Vogue, Esquire, Condé Nast Traveler, The Huffington Post and more.
He has also participated as an expert panelist at industry events including Golden State of Cocktails on the subject of media relations in the food and beverage space.
Having been a member of the media and a public relations professional, Colin offers a unique perspective on building relationships with members of the media as well as a keen understanding of what constitutes news and exactly what it takes to get stories placed.
Colin is based in West Hollywood, California and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of Arizona.
