Campaign Portfolio


I ran for party and local elected office in 2020. First, for SCCDCC in March as a newcomer in a large district, and then for City Council in a 4-seat at-large race with 10 candidates, including two incumbents, a former mayor, and a prior candidate. While I did not win these elections as a first-time candidate for each, it was a great learning experience, and I hope to have the opportunity to run again.

Field & Data Strategy

As the digital strategy and data director on local campaigns in 2018, I used PDI, county data, ActionNetwork, and additional data sources to plan out our ground game, our lawn- and road-sign strategy, and our direct mail strategy. I also used this data in our online marketing and voter outreach, applying tried and true methods, such as county data, and newer methods, like VoterCircle (now Outreach Circle).

Communications & Graphic Design

I was honored to be managing graphics, branding, and communications presence for several campaigns since 2018. I designed print and online ads, email banners and content, and direct mail collateral, and in some cases, the candidate logo itself.

Many of the campaigns that I support in 2018 had little to no budget for graphic design. I reached out to numerous Emerge sisters who were running and offered to help them with one-off graphics and communications tech support, such as designing custom remit envelopes and setting up a MailChimp account and list for them.

In 2017, I created graphics for state party delegates who were running to help elect Kimberly Ellis. After the election, when the votes were being recounted, I was inspired by the inconsistency between those telling Kimberly to back down while simultaneously launching the "persist girl" campaign. I created a mashup of those two concepts to illustrate the irony, and it became the rallying image of the recount campaign. Kimberly used this iconic graphic as her profile image for over a year after the election, and is still in use by many of her supporters.

Fundraising & Volunteering

There are always ways to get involved in campaigns that one feels passionate about, even if one is already over-committed. I was honored to be able to fit in opportunities to help Josh Harder flip CD-10, to help Susan Ellenberg win a hotly contested endorsement, and to get the word out about an important school bond (while canvassing for my candidates).
