“In this… “bizness”, one needs to know how to promote their career and more importantly their image. It is mandatory for artists to grasp their own reigns via credible public relations architects who will construct a positive picture thereby becoming responsible for their own destiny and legacy.This is truly important”. said Eugenia Wright, Publicity Architect.

About Eugenia J. Wright:
Eugenia Wright, was a former television/film and theatre actress naturally progressed into the public relations field during the late eighties. She recognized early on that public relations was an essential tool to promote one’s career while working as a teen actress guest-starring on such television shows as The Love Boat, Chips, Magnum PI, Quincy, White Shadow, Hill Street Blues, Blue Thunder  and others. Her proficiency with the English language and capable writing skills set her apart from her fellow actors and soon they too were asking her to represent them.
By the early nineties, Eugenia realized that public relations was equally as important as acting and was hired by one of the most prestigious public relations houses in the world Rogers & Cowan. Working directly under the guidance of co-founder legendary publicist Warren Cowan and public relations expert Alan Nierob, responsible for the careers of Jennifer Lopez, Denzel Washington, Oscar De La Hoya and Mel Gibson, to name a few.
While at Rogers & Cowan, Eugenia was directly responsible for assisting in the image development of such stars as Robin Givens, Joan Collins, Diahann Carroll, Richard Lawson, Ali McGraw, Heather Locklear, Victoria Principal and many more. Eugenia was finally in her realm. However, the film industry continued to beckon and she returned to film and starred in “Perfume” “The Further Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and a comedy entitled “Off Sides” with Tony Randall and Patrick Swayze and Penitentiary II with Leon Isaac-Kennedy. She also starred in many Shakespearean pieces for KCET including MacBeth and Othello. On stage she assayed such roles as Juliet in an interracial version of Romeo & Juliet and received an LA Drama Critics Circle Nomination, Drama Logue Awards and great citywide recognition. Other lead roles that are memorable include Cleopatra in Caesar & Cleopatra, Cleopatra in Antony & Cleopatra at the Globe Playhouse and she was awarded an NAACP nomination and garnered rave reviews from LA’s toughest critics. Famed artist Avery Clayton known for his beautiful black and white renderings was inspired to sketch Eugenia as Cleopatra set to a backdrop of the Sphinx which hung in L A’s Black History Museum and is now part of his treasured art portfolio. Henceforth, Eugenia Wright has and is referred to by many as “Kleopatra Girl.”

In spite of her success on the big and little screen, Eugenia Wright always managed to keep her public relations skills polished and would act as star and publicist for many of the shows she both starred and produced. Five years ago, after rearing her one and only child Isa into his teens, Eugenia reflected on which career would she continue to pursue, acting or public relations? Her love for image building (PR) outweighed her love for acting. She devoted herself to promoting the careers of many industry stars including her husband, veteran of stage and screen and highly sought after voice over talent J.D. Hall. She has promoted and marketed his image to a veneer finish which has lead him to become a highly acclaimed narrator of such blockbuster productions as “The Scorpion King,” “Under Cover Brother,” “The E! True Hollywood Story of Richard Pryor,” “The E! True Story of Good Times” and hundreds of other credits including radio and television commercials, too numerous to mention. Eugenia has also been extremely successful in promoting the image of several corporate accounts such as Revivogen Hair Care Products, Senor Fresh Restaurants and others. While on staff as Sr. Account Executive at Bordeaux PR for  four consecutive years she strategized the impeccable image of several Gold’s Gym accounts in the Los Angeles area. These gyms were always featured in the news largely due to Eugenia’s PR expertise and exquisitely written press releases. The owners recently graced the cover of the most prestigious fitness magazine in the country-CBI due to Eugenia’s abilities to pitch a story. All press releases emanating from Bordeaux at the time of her employ were  creatively penned by Eugenia. She was also the alias scribe of many aritcles on the premiere fitness facility.
Eugenia’s solid relationship with the media, developed over the years, is a publicist dream. Her ability to befriend and interact with the media due to her exuberant outgoing personality and lyrical voice quality is an asset. And her credibility is unsurpassed passing all checkpoints with flying colors.
Other accounts that have increased notoriety, exposure and/or sales directly from Eugenia’s PR efforts include: The Isuzu Long Beach Marathon, Comedian Celia Fox who is currently producer for Wasabi Tuna and developing a new film starring Anna Nicole, The Art of Exotic Dance which became the most popular strip tease aerobics workout in the nation due to Eugenia’s efforts, Robert Kennedy, Publisher of MuscleMag, American Curves, American Health & Fitness and Oxygen magazines, Built to Survive (manual for AIDS victims), The Body Spa @ Gold’s Gym Downtown.
Under her company ISA PR’s banner: Dancer/Choreographer Barry YoungBlood, Joey Dowdy, original choreographer for the Back Street Boys (prior to Fatima Robinson), Bianca’s Botanicals, a cosmetic company specializing in all natural hair and body products, The Athletic Garage, owned and operated by Hip Hop Diva Madonna Grimes, Music Mogul Chris Stokes, Hip Hop and R&B Artist, Marques Houston, Fashion Photographer and Image Maker to The Stars Tim Alexander, Photojournalist Vinni Ratcliff, Comedienne Irene “Mama” Stokes, Barker’s Beauty Kathleen Bradley, Urban Film Premiere Web Magazine and others including a high profile attorney handling a sensitive front page news court case. In addition ISA PR has handled many special events and CD Release Party and Promotions. Recently, CRUNK MAGAZINE, one of the hottest publications for hip hop news and entertainment sought out the PR maven to represent them as West Coast Contributor. “This is a new challenge.I love the energy and flow of hip hop. I plan on giving this genre of music its due respect in Crunk” stated the kleopatra girl of PR in a featured article in Lee Bailey’s Electronic Urban Report.
All accounts handled by Eugenia are based on her passion for the subject matter. It is easy to generate interest from the media when “the source” is 100% convinced that what they are promoting is genuine. Her efforts for these accounts are outstanding and she takes on the challenges in reaching their targeted media markets with zeal, whether it is mainstream or ethnic media. Her contacts with all media outlets, television, newspapers, magazines, radio and the Internet are solid. She is highly creative and every PR campaign is tailor made to suit the client’s needs. She is skilled at creating the right angle or hook at just the right time that catches the media’s attention.
Her commitment and mission statement is “To put forth my best effort by providing excellent customer service using the latest technology and targeting all media contacts with a professional platinum presentation and professional aggressive approach.” She further states, “Publicity is the key that unlocks one’s image and or business to local, national and the global market.”
Eugenia Wright is a native of Guatemala, Central America. She was raised in Boston Massachusetts and grew up as a ward in the household of Carl McCall, 2002 Democratic candidate for Governor of the State of New York.
She has made the most of her life by thinking positive and turned her dreams into realities. She is happily married to highly sought after voice over actor, writer, producer, J.D. Hall, afore-mentioned who in addition to acting, etched his name in the annals of history, as the first African American ever to run for the President of The Screen Actors Guild. Ms. Wright is a natural communicator and proficient in several languages giving her the added flexibility to interact with others. Eugenia has one child, Isa Hall. Her company bears his name.
