A personality, a creative director, a political commentator, a military brat, Drexel has had his hands in all different kinds of outlets. Having been a member of both College Republicans and College Democrats at North Carolina State University, Drexel's knowledge of how the government works, his keen sense of domestic and international policy, coupled with his love for Washington news, has made him a leading voice in a generation.
Over the years, Drexel has worked to get both Democrats and Republicans elected having helped elect both North Carolina Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr, as well as the campaigns for both President Obama and President Bush. After the 2008 election, Drexel relocated to New York expanding his expertise in the entertainment community, becoming one of the most sought out creative directors in the Broadway and the LGBT community. From spending two years working with the Point Foundation Honors, celebrating the year's LGBT Point Scholarship recipients and celebrity honorees, Drexel had the opportunity to work closely with the likes of Judith Light, Angela Lansbury, Kelly Ripa, Silvio Horto, Andy Cohen and more. In 2010, Drexel took over the creative reigns of several annual Broadway benefits, primarily focused on the Ali Forney Center and the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program. Bringing together community leaders and Tony-winning Broadway performers over the next couple of years, Drexel was able to elevate the quality of charitable benefits and raise awareness for areas of importance.
Drexel currently represents the 39th Assembly District as a Delegate to the California Democratic Party, and is a member of the Los Angeles County Young Democrats, Stonewall Democrats, San Fernando Valley Young Democrats, and the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. He was Chief Political Analyst and host for AfterBuzzTV's The Political Beat and currently is the Co-Host for Hellbent Podcast.
