About Me

From leading multinational branding campaign, working with politicians on both sides of the aisle, or helping resolve high-value legal disputes, Cole has built a career that sits at the crossroads of information, influence and innovation.

Notably, in 2006, Cole led the branding and communications efforts for a $10.5 billion dollar financial services campaign. Following that, Cole worked with companies including Amazon, Microsoft and T-Mobile.



In 2008 and 2012, Cole served as an adviser and communications aid on both of President Barack Obama's successful Presidential Campaigns, helping shape history and redefine the American dream.
