A former field organizer and research fellow, Jamari Torrence understands how to keep a team running smoothly behind the scenes, adapt quickly to a constantly changing political environment, and can confirm the endangered status of the short-tailed ermine (they’re in good shape). As Political Media Associate, Jamari helps manage the day-to-day operations of Hamburger Gibson Creative, providing essential support to the partners and team members. Jamari came to HGCreative after being a field organizer on the successful reelection campaign of Governor Jay Inslee (D-WA). He previously was a fellow in the technology and telecommunications division at the Podesta Group, where he supported staff with research and analysis on a variety of congressional issues. During his summers home from college, he interned on then Rep. Jay Inslee’s 2012 race for governor, the Washington State Democratic party and at a progressive democratic political consulting firm in Seattle. A native Seattleite and proud Seahawks fan, Jamari earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Howard University in Washington, DC.
