These past few months have been a whirlwind in the Warehouse with the launch of several large projects, preparing to move offices and, most importantly, the addition of some amazing new team members. We’re very excited that Drew, Natasha, Phill, Jeff and Brea all decided to join the NJI crew. Each brings a range of experience and, of course, a passion for excellence and eating contests. Take a moment to meet them:
Drew Ellis – Graphic Designer
Whether designing for web, print, creating illustration or working with typography, Drew brings creativity and sophistication in all areas of his work. He is a graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University with a degree in Visual Communications Design and an Associates Degree in Business Administration from NVCC. Drew is a motorcycle enthusiast, artist, and sports fan.
Natasha Fedorovoa – Graphic Designer
Natasha is a native of Moscow, Russia, but she grew up in the DC metro area. In Fall of 2011, she graduated from George Mason University and joined the NJI team shortly thereafter. After interning, Natasha was hired as a full-time designer here and works on a wide range of client projects. She spends her non-working time going to concerts and art shows, browsing Etsy and design blogs, doing crafty things, and traveling.
Phillip Herndon – Director of Strategy
Phillip came to us with a strong digital policy and journalism background. When he’s not talking about any of that, it’s usually about R. Kelly or amazing animals. Phillip’s favorite foods are avocado, croissants, and chicken wings. He studied English and Philosophy at U.Va. before getting into journalism, later abandoning that for digital communications (much more fun).
Jeffrey Hubbard – Managing Director, NYC
Jeffrey manages the day-to-day operations of the NJI Media New York City office. Specifically, Jeffrey oversees the core business development and works with his in house team to deliver award winning products and services for clients. His professional experiences include digital strategy, advertising, project management and crisis communications within large organizations both in the commercial and non-profit spaces. In his spare time, Jeffrey supports USC athletics and maintains a healthy love-hate relationship with Chicago sports.
Brea MacIsaac – Strategy Associate
Brea joined the NJI team in August, after graduating with an M.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce. As a Strategy Associate, she specializes in gathering and analyzing data to make content and online strategy recommendations to NJI’s clients. Her talents don’t end there–true to her Scottish heritage, Brea was an accomplished bagpiper in her youth.
