"Josh served as Digital Director on my campaign for Governor of Rhode Island. Josh was an MVP throughout the campaign -- extremely responsive, adaptable, visionary, and helpful. In a high-stress environment, he worked well with everyone and always met tight timelines. He was also extremely professional in working with the public, and he is an asset to any organization or movement seeking a highly competent, reliable, and driven digital leader. "
--Clay Pell, Former Democratic Rhode Island Candidate for Governor; Lieutenant and Judge Advocate, US Coast Guard; Director for Strategic Planning, National Security Staff; White House Fellow; and Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Office of International and Foreign Language Education, US Department of Education
"Josh's social media expertise helped tremendously throughout my campaign seeking election to municipal government. This successful campaign was my first introduction to elections and organizing a campaign, and at a local municipal level, much of the organizing falls on the shoulders of the candidate. As such, having the ability to access folks like Josh, who are able to provide clear guidance, support and troubleshooting was invaluable.
Although working for municipal campaigns in a Canadian context was new for Josh, he went above and beyond to back my campaign. Josh has expertise working on political campaigns for women, which was a great asset. He helped me build advertising campaigns that were concise and targeted. His guidance around messaging has continued to help me throughout my social media channels as a City Councillor. All of the consultation I received was through Skype, which worked very well. Josh was able to walk me through any questions I had as we could display our screens. In addition, Josh was efficient in his coaching and was able to provide a lot of information in a short period of time. I felt that my time was valued and the information I received was thoughtful and never rushed. I highly recommend Josh [and his team] to help elevate your campaign. Josh worked specifically with me on Facebook, Twitter and NationBuilder. Regardless of the platform being used, I am confident that Josh would be a great fit to back your campaign team."
