Above & Beyond Publicity

One theme has defined us since day one: We don’t settle for good enough. 130A gives 130% effort to land extraordinary exposure of good people, projects and products to specialty and general audiences.

We Champion Your Cause

You shot a movie or you’re about to make one, you wrote a book, you have an important outreach, an event, a product . . . but who cares? Journalists are busy, and the people you want to reach have infinite options. We care, and we’ll harness the power of earned media to connect your cause with an audience who will value it.

Does your story have the potential to make the world a better place?

After working in the private sector and with another agency, I started my agency with a partner in 2002 because I had observed this:  Everyone has the potential to make the world a better place, but some people actually do. I want to advance those stories, because they inspire others. While you’re busy doing good, I am looking for the right place to build a bridge for your story from where you are, to where you can go. Who will be inspired by what you have? What media do they consume? Who are the new friends you need to know who complement your cause with theirs? I hold a high bar because in my view, inspiring people and spreading the word about goodness, is a high purpose. When not working for you, I’m enjoying my little slice of heaven in the Texas Hill Country with my chuck-wagon cooking husband, Rick, twirling me around a dance floor, and spending time with our ever-expanding family.

Julie Fairchild | President & CEO


Morgann, born in the Bahamas, was drawn to Dallas in 2011. Graduating from Southwestern Assemblies of God University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Communications, as well as a Master's in Divinity and Theology, she found a passion for building relationships and storytelling. She has 9 years of experience in Marketing and has delivered creative and engaging solutions across brand identity, print, digital media, and public relations.

Outside of work, you can find her advocating for orphans in Haiti and working directly with survivors of sex trafficking in the DFW area. She loves being a voice for those that do not have one. She loves food from different cultures, spending time with family, and anything related to the outdoors!

Morgann Delaney | Media Specialist


I'm marketing minded and prefer high-level strategizing over nit-picking details.

I like strange situations that require fast thinking; I especially like new places and people, and getting to know them well. My colleagues describe me as the company’s Swiss Army Knife, but I’d say I’m a bridger of gaps—even if they’re way outside my comfort zone--to connect people, make friends, and embrace uncertainties. That's why you may find me on a film set doing unit publicity, orchestrating a press junket, leading a press tour in a foreign land, or working with photography and video teams on gallery shoots and sizzle reels. Chaos and adventure, I love, and spoken words over the written ones, especially self-written bios. I like hunting, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and anything outdoors. I live in Dallas with my wife and three children.

"The art of publicity is a black art; but it has come to stay, and every year adds to its potency."

- Thomas Paine
Let’s face it, our world is deluded with all the worst kinds of publicity. The proof is in a quick Google search of today’s top stories, and frankly, I want no part of that. Having worked with the smallest outlets in North Dakota, to the largest platforms in New York and LA, my passion is to take your best story and tell it to the right media. When those two things come together, we have a real chance of influencing the 24-hour news cycle for the better and making a difference. When I’m not practicing the dark arts of PR, you’ll find me with my beautiful family (Lindy, John Alfred, Clementine & Luke), playing the fiddle, making espresso, or making things out of wood.

Michael Conrad | Director of Publicity


I love people, words and stories. Especially the ones that change lives.

Details and checklists are my MO. I like to talk, and I love to listen. Relationships are essential to my being. Marketing, journalism, and all of the above passions collide in my role at 130A. Knowing our clients and their stories, connecting them with media who want audiences to be touched in a positive way, and watching the chemistry take place is pure joy. Logistics, details and accurate expense reports are the icing on the cake. When I’m away from my computer, you’ll find me running with my two black labs and toddler, eating frozen yogurt with my husband, or hanging out on a picnic under the Washington Monument.

Catherine Binkley | Associate Publicist


I'm a Texan by birth, a New Yorker by choice, and proud of both.

After two careers in newspapers and corporate PR, I moved to NYC (with a very understanding wife) in 2006 to write musicals. (Our five kids refer to it as “Dad’s midlife crisis.”) Since 2008, I’ve had the great privilege of writing for Julie almost daily. I’m motivated to tell good stories for 130A clients that help our team gain positive, engaging exposure for them. I enjoy guiding our materials through the editing process to get the best press pieces we can. And I love working with the 130A family.

Accounting - what can I say?

I am a life-long Texan, having lived in the beautiful Coastal Bend for 45 years. I’m a proud graduate of Texas A&M University, with accounting background in public accounting, construction, and wholesale merchandising. I’m very excited to work in the public relations industry with the 130A team, serving faith-based clients. I have two sons with my first grandbaby on the way. My favorite hobbies are music and watching sports.
