Over the course of eight years, Rivertown grew to be one of the top full-service Democratic consulting shops in the Midwest. The firm branched out to work in several states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Oregon, and Florida, advising candidate campaigns and independent expenditure committees.
In the 2020 cycle, Jared served as a Senior Advisor to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, advising candidates and staff in some of the nation’s most competitive districts at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and the parallel presidential campaign. The DCCC helped to preserve a Democratic majority following that tumultuous cycle.
Following the election, Jared joined Technicolor Political as a Principal, working as the ad maker and media consultant for a range of clients, including national committees, and candidates for Governor, Congress, and other statewide and local offices. Technicolor is the largest majority Black-owned firm in the Democratic party and is focused on creating and placing content that breaks the mold of traditional political advertising and grabs the attention of voters who are oftentimes engaging with multiple screens at once.
