We've assembled a team with experience across the Public Affairs space.

Jonathon Rowland

Managing & Founding Partner

With over 12 years of experience in paid canvass, mail operations, media relations, strategic ballot initiatives, corporate grassroots advocacy, and PAC management, Jonathon provides management and grassroots consulting to a range of clients. He has implemented high-profile campaigns for Obama 2012, Everytown for Gun Safety, and Next Generation Climate Change as well as several high-profile corporate clients.  Jonathon is focused on the ground strategy, building strong community relationships, and directly relaying client messages to legislators’ employers: their constituents.

In his free time, Jonathon enjoys fishing the Chesapeake Bay in his trusty pedal kayak and volunteering on several boards dedicated to community involvement and social empowerment.

John J. Rohrer

Founding Partner

A creative politico who got his start making homemade signs for Kerry for President, John has been a multimedia planner and creative designer for a variety of organizations: statewide and local political campaigns, Fortune 100 companies, and respected local and international non-profits. A message is only as compelling as its presentation — John works with clients to ensure that their advertising aligns and empowers the larger communications strategy.

Outside of work, John enjoys going to Grateful Dead cover band shows, rooting for his beloved Baltimore sports teams, camping, and spending time on the one-of-a-kind Chesapeake Bay.

Daniel Otto


Daniel Otto is a seasoned political operative with 10+ cycles of experience organizing and managing electoral campaigns, from the local to the national level, with a focus on hiring, training, managing diverse teams, and building data-driven programs from the ground up. From Field Organizer to Campaign Manager, Daniel has been on the winning campaigns of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 primary, Margaret Good for Florida State House, and Andrea Bailey for Prince William County Supervisor. Daniel works with Fells Group to manage, direct, and execute winning tactics on behalf of our clients.

In his free time, Daniel enjoys exploring new places to eat, watching curling (the sport), writing, and working to visit every National Park.
