Before joining Ceisler Media, Drew was Communications Director/Public Affairs Coordinator for the Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges, a statewide advocacy group where he worked directly with the president/CEO, writing speeches and preparing her for legislative testimony. He produced weekly newsletters, managed the Commission’s social media and website, and gained invaluable insight into the Legislature’s appropriations process.

He is a news junkie, who follows dozens of reporters on Twitter and loves learning the details of state and national issues before they hit the paper.
He is a fantasy football authority who will gladly help you with your draft at no additional charge. Beyond the X’s and O’s, Drew is fascinated by the marketplace of top-tier football talent, and enjoys events like National Signing Day, the start of NFL free agency, and the NFL Draft almost as much as the games themselves
