About

We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness…

—Thomas Jefferson’s draft of the Declaration of Independence

Liberty is our unalienable right.

Deliberate means making a choice. 

Deliberate Liberty is the very lifeblood of businesses, organizations and artists. We are all in pursuit of our happiness and our liberty. And no one more so than those of us who seek to blaze our own trails. Let me help you to stand out from the crowd. I can help to share your voice and your passion in an increasingly loud and crowded world.

Deliberate Liberty PR and Design is based in a building estimated to be 270 years old in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. In the early 1800s, it became a schoolhouse named “Liberty School.”
