Annie cut her teeth in politics as a member of President Obama’s media team during his hard-fought re-election campaign.
As a political strategist and writer at media-consulting firm GMMB, she helped elect progressive candidates up and down the ballot, crafting messages that brought voters to the polls and changed hearts, minds, and behaviors. In 2014, TIME magazine named one of her TV spots among the best of its cycle.
At West Wing Writers, she works with politicians and nonprofit leaders, Fortune CEOs and heads of startups, to make big ideas relatable, provocative, and persuasive. She has written books on the future of work, speeches for the UN floor, and product-launch scripts heard by millions.
Annie graduated from Brown University — though she considers her first job, tending bar at the now-defunct Peggy O’Neill’s on the Coney Island boardwalk, an equally important part of her professional education. She lives in Brooklyn with her high school sweetheart and a son she adores.
