With a focus on grassroots fundraising during the 2018 election cycle, Mariel wrote hundreds of issue-based emails, petitions, and social posts to mobilize supporters on behalf of progressive organizations and Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. One of Mariel’s emails for John Fetterman earned CMG a Silver Pollie Award in 2019!
As the main creative copywriter for the agency, Mariel collaborates across departments to put together effective video, digital, and print materials for clients, and uses their sharp writing and creative chops to help progressives craft their messaging, reach supporters online, raise money, and win elections.
Before entering the digital world, Mariel got their start in politics as an intern on the Hill for Senator Bernie Sanders, and went on to become an organizer for his 2016 Presidential campaign. Mariel holds a degree in Political Science from the University of Vermont, and can be found working remotely at a cute coffee shop near you.
