“I loved working with Emerson Street Media - Kyle & Jeff are the best! Smart, professional, and amazing strategists who did a fantastic job crafting an overview brochure involving complex material for a new division of our company. It became an integral part of our sales efforts. And that piece was so well received we hired them again to work with our CSuite and sales team to update our overall company narrative. I recommend Emerson wholeheartedly!”

“My experience with the team at Emerson Street Media was incredibly insightful and gainful to my campaign strategy, development, and execution. I had the opportunity of sitting down with the ESM team early to offer them a sense of my goals and objectives and they offered strategic insights and advisory as to the most efficient and effective communication channels to pursue. Throughout, they remained adaptable, supportive, collaborative, and accessible. To this day, ESM remains a relied upon source of expert strategic counsel.”

“When it came to handling the logistics around our inbound press requests, Emerson Street Media was unsurpassed as a partner. They handled everything, which helped us focus on our core business while we still reaped the benefits of the media connections they made.”

Stephen Butz


Taharka Brothers

“Emerson Street Media have produced multiple classy and engaging short videos that we use to promote the company. Our story is a complicated one to tell, and Emerson started with understanding us, only bringing the camera in later when they were clear about who we are. It’s been a couple of years, and we are ready to make more content, but the videos are still fresh and accurately project our style, our brand, and our story. Most of us are not movie actors, but Emerson worked with us to be camera ready and confident for the shoots. All round a great experience.”

Johnathan Terrell

Founder & President


“We have worked closely with the Emerson Street team on multiple video production projects, and we have been consistently impressed by their expertise, collaboration and dedication to ensuring a high level of quality. Emerson Street has a commitment to getting all the details right- big and small- something we value greatly at SAP.”

Renata Pompeu-Pividal

VP of Multimedia Content & Global Communications


“I couldn't recommend Jeff and the Emerson Street Media team more! We've been working alongside them for that last two years and because of their approach they truly feel like an extension of our own staff. They are diligent, relationship-focused, and always leading with actionable solutions. Don't hesitate to get connected if you're in need of creative and strategic PR efforts for your business!”

“Over my long career, I have dealt with many communications groups with various skill sets, but none has offered the depth of quality, creativity, and the insightful support that Emerson Street Media offers each and every one of its' clients. The quality of their PR and Video Production work is superb and the depth of their team is remarkable. I wholeheartedly recommend them to any business inquiring about their services.”

“I recently worked with Emerson Street Media to produce two corporate videos to promote our business and use as a recruiting tool for new employees. The team was incredibly professional, organized and easy to work with and the final videos were polished and heartwarming. ESM also took the time at the beginning of the project to understand our business goals and then kept those goals in sight all the way through. I would recommend them to any business looking for a professional video production company.”

Emily Mooney

Director of Marketing and Communications

Bernstein Management Corp.

"Jeff and Kyle, two absolute professionals! Their decades of media experience truly came through. I really enjoyed the process of making this video, I really got an opportunity to delve back into my brand and explore again Why we do What we do. We mapped out the entire project beforehand and they were even very supportive when I needed to reschedule due to a staffing conflict. From beginning to end they walked me through each step and placed my comfort at the top of the priority list."
