ABOUT

We're a dedicated team of professionals, with a shared interest in helping organizations become more effective. DMI started as a one-person office in Des Moines, Iowa. In the four years since, our team has grown into a multi-state operation, with a presence throughout the midwest, and in Washington, DC.

He had it all planned out - he was going to be a lawyer, arguing for what's right in courts all over Iowa. But somewhere along the way - probably around Pete's sixth birthday - the Iowa caucuses took over, and his life would never be the same. Political engagement became the tool for great public policy.

 

From national service, to advising senior elected officials, to counseling private companies, Pete's been at the front lines of state and national policy for more than two decades. As a speechwriter, legislative attorney, campaign manager, nonprofit director, and business owner, Pete has lived at the intersection of policy, communications, and management. And he's loved every minute of it. 

 

Samantha has travelled all over the world and worked in Australia and the UK before settling down in LA. Otherwise known in the office as the networker, Samantha’s charm and willingness to talk to anyone and everyone has been key to building our large local client base.

Despite her fondness for chit chat, Samantha is a bit of a book worm and likes nothing more than a night in with a good book.
