the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

Synergy, that’s why the leaders of three great companies came together – to create an organization with the power to do so much more than the sum of its parts.

Jay Hix Jones, the founder of Hungry Fish Media, is an award-winning writer, director, and producer with more than 20 years of industry experience working on and producing projects that have been seen by millions of viewers worldwide. He is currently a producer for A&E’s Emmy-nominated show Hoarders and has produced other well-known Emmy-winning series such as ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the History Channel’s Ice Road Truckers. Hungry Fish is a reference to audiences that are “hungry” for content that matters, he says.

Joshua Estes, along with partner Sean O Sullivan, are the dynamic duo behind Pacific Northwest Regional Strategies, LLC (PNWRS), local governmental affairs and political consulting firm that specializes among other things, in lobbying governments on behalf of special interest groups, businesses, and community organizations. More and more often they find themselves turning to the power of visual storytelling to get their message across.

Connery Glans founded JAGGED, an influencer and brand marketing agency that supports the strategic communications and digital strategy wing of PNWRS Partners. Transforming hobbies into careers and scaling influencers into entrepreneurs are just two of the many services that Jagged offers. Glans is a social media industry insider and accomplished marketer, who understands the importance and value of building a brand and connecting with an audience.

Individually they are forces to be reckoned with. Together, as PNWRS Partners, they are dynamite that packs an explosive storytelling punch.

“It all goes back to what you call synergy – having the ability to tell the most expansive story to advocate for your client,” says Estes. “So, we really have some skill sets that not only overlap but really enhance each other and give our clients and community partners a variety of professional perspectives and the ability to tell a full-scale 360 story.”

It’s all about storytelling with the new partnership that aims to serve local communities and businesses, from startups and smaller businesses to larger national and international corporations and nonprofits with their variety of service offerings including video production, campaign consulting, brand management, marketing, and legislative advocacy to name a few.

Jones is especially excited to bring his TV storytelling prowess to the world of business and so are his new partners. “We love helping businesses convey their message whether it’s to the legislature or to their audience or customer base,” Glans says. “We want to be able to help them maximize that storytelling and maximize that message in a creative and new way.”

Newly located in the Historic Firehouse building in downtown Snohomish, the partners are open for business and offering a free consultation and thirty 30% off their initial services through the end of the year. “The legislative session is right around the corner,” says Estes. We work with all types of organizations and our unique partnership allows us the flexibility to offer some amazing discounts!”

Every person has a story.

Every business has a story.

PNWRS Partners wants to help share those unique and personal stories with the world.
