POOLHOUSE continued to grow in May, as we welcomed four new team members into key roles. We keep raising the bar to provide even better, more comprehensive services to our brand and campaign partners.

Meet the latest additions to the team:

John Phillips, Design Director

A South Carolina native and graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, JP has a passion for all things creative, and has been fortunate enough to work on a variety of projects in various mediums for many years as a designer and illustrator.

JP has the honor of helping motivate, elevate, and fine-tune processes on a daily basis for the exceptionally talented design team at POOLHOUSE.

Justin Toulon, Editor

As Editor, Justin takes the visuals at POOLHOUSE to the next level.

With over 10 years of experience filming and editing documentaries, films, music videos, and news, Justin’s background in television and film enables him to bring a cinematic flair to his projects.

When he’s not cutting awesome videos, Justin enjoys crushing weights at the gym and spending time with his wife, daughter, and 2 dogs.

Tom Dickens, Producer

A producer over the last 3 years for political campaigns, shoots, and ads, Tom brings tremendous knowledge and hustle to our team.

He’s worked on political campaigns across the country at the state and national level as well as for State and Federal Government. Most recently, Tom served as Director of Political Strategy at the Republican National Committee before founding his company, SAO Films.

And once we get a break from election season… Tom will teach us all how to catch and release as he runs a side business as a fly fishing and hunting guide in Alaska and Wyoming and was even a commercial fisherman in the Gulf of Maine.

Corey Scott, Project Manager, Political

With years of campaign, legislative, and executive agency experience, Corey brings a unique skillset to meet our clients’ needs.

On the political team, Corey works hard to make sure our clients are set up for success with the tools they need to win. In addition to being POOLHOUSE’s resident space nerd, Corey is a combat sports enthusiast, enjoys riding his motorcycle, and loves bowling.



POOLHOUSE is walking away with some big wins at the 2021 Pollie, Telly, and Reed Awards. We’re stoked to have our video and brand work recognized again this year.

What’s our secret for award-winning work? Clarity, intention, execution, grit? Well, those all play their part. But we have to give credit to our clients, who come to the table with the belief that big ideas matter. Clients that trust the process and are willing to invest in creativity, time and again, prove to be a crucial factor in the equation. We’re grateful to partner with clients like that every day.
