Communications Specialist, Campaign & Creative Director

As a political strategist and communications director, Jin's work spans from managing grassroots campaigns to overseeing direct mail programs and producing digital/print/video ads for candidates. Recent winning campaigns include Mark Levine for Manhattan Borough President, Carmen De La Rosa for NYC Council, and Mimi Rocah for Westchester County District Attorney.  She’s also contributed to a digital campaign that pushed for the passage of 2019's Reproductive Health Act, which codified Roe v Wade in the state of New York.

 

Her pivot to politics follows a nearly 20-year career in Hollywood producing award-winning creative advertising campaigns(theatrical trailers, on-air promos, print and digital ads) for global box-office releases like Peter Jackson's King Kong, Ang Lee's The Hulk, The Fast & the Furious franchise; acclaimed films Brokeback Mountain, Love Actually; streaming hits Ballers, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Hard Knocks; and the relaunch of HBO’s Kids/Family channel with the network’s acquisition of Sesame Street.


Prior to her career in film & tv marketing, she was a print journalist working as a cops and City Hall beat reporter for the Los Angeles Times Orange County edition, the Los Angeles Daily News and a newswriting fellow with the Poynter Institute for Journalism.

A native of Koreatown, Los Angeles, and a graduate of the University of Southern California, Jin is based in New York.
