Orrin brings over a decade of experience in campaign management, strategic communications, and public affairs to our political and private sector clients.

Right wing media stated Orrin is “known for his aggressive style,” and in 2018 Orrin led the campaign and media strategy for over a dozen winning California races and initiatives.

In 2010, Orrin was political director for U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer’s re-election campaign, coordinating the campaign’s rapid response effort, producing message events, and mobilizing constituency groups for earned media opportunities.

Orrin cut his political teeth working for then-Senator Barack Obama in the first in the nation Iowa Presidential Caucuses in 2007. During the general election Orrin managed the winning Get Out The Vote operation in Indiana, which resulted in the first Democratic Presidential nominee to win the state in 44 years.

Orrin was honored to join President Obama’s administration serving as a Senior Advisor to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, focusing on communications strategies around Administration initiatives including First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's Rural Tour.
