As New Deal’s in-house video editor, Trison specializes in creating short-form video content on platforms like X (Twitter), TikTok, Instagram and Youtube. His videos help our clients transform complex policy and political news into digestible visual content.

Trison boasts an extensive portfolio encompassing a diverse range of political campaigns, from district attorney and mayoral races to those at the state and federal levels, including House of Representatives, gubernatorial, and Senate campaigns. His creativity has consistently elevated the digital presence of candidates, leaving an indelible mark on the political landscape.

On the Fetterman for Senate campaign in 2022, Trison worked with the team to make several viral videos that poked fun at Dr. Oz’s celebrity status and New Jersey residency. Unlike many commonly nasty and mean-spirited political ads, these videos were funny and as a result, sticky. They garnered attention from traditional media outlets, were featured on TV and in newspapers.

Trison’s talent lies not only in his technical proficiency but also in his ability to capture the essence of each campaign and translate it into compelling visual stories. His videos have garnered widespread attention, with millions of views across various online platforms. Numbers aside, Trison’s videos have sparked conversations, galvanized support, and influenced voter sentiment, effectively shaping the narrative of the races he has been involved in.

A lifelong progressive, Trison believes in the power of grassroots organizing. Ever since college, he has engaged voters by knocking doors and phone-banking in support of progressive candidates like Isaiah James and Shaniyat Chowdhury.

Trison graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice and holds a B.A. in Political Science.
