CLAY OLSEN 
// CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CO-FOUNDER)

With a passion for film and an entrepreneurial heart, Clay is the vision behind Fight the New Drug. He can be found touring the country, speaking in assemblies, filming and raving about his favorite restaurant of the day. After living in Argentina, founding four businesses, and establishing a solid career path, Clay forsook all logic, quit his day job and began dedicating all of his time towards Fight the New Drug. His idealistic vision and years of hard work have made Fight the New Drug what it is today.

RYAN WERNER // CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER (CO-FOUNDER)

Ryan is a mountain man wannabe, connoisseur of doughnuts, proud husband, and father of two. In 2009, Ryan left his comfortable surroundings, turned his back on a steady income, and moved to cities to further establish Fight the New Drug, an idea which was mostly conceptual at that point. Loads of leadership experience, marketing prowess, and entrepreneurship make him a valuable asset to FTND.

JORDAN GOUGH 
// ART DIRECTOR

Jordan is the artistic hand at FTND, crafting beautiful masterpieces with his design skills. If he’s not thinking about design, he’s probably thinking about what kind of pizza he’ll eat next or exploring the intricacies of the Home Alone films. If there’s a dull moment in Jordan’s life, it’s filled with useless TV binge watching, living in raw denim jeans, and trying to get in as many push-ups and pull-ups as possible. #Reps. Jordan’s spirit animal is an alligator and he falls asleep at night dreaming about fonts, namely, Futura Bold.

NATALE MCANENEY // OFFICE MANAGER

Natale is one of those rare breeds that is as equally right brained as she is left brained. She is a thespian stage performer with an obsessive organizational mindset. Her job is to keep the blood pumping on the day-to-day at the office and make sure the FTND ship is always running smoothly. Natale majored in Performing Arts and has traveled as a choir member to England, Scotland, and Wales. In her spare time, you can find her scouring the local farmers market and hanging with baristas at local coffee shops.

CRAIG BAKKER 
// PROGRAM DIRECTOR

If you can find it on a map, odds are that Craig has been there. As a seasoned world traveler, Craig’s passion to change the world is as strong as his desire to travel it. He is a certified snowboard instructor, avid concert goer, action sports brand guru, and is friends with so many pro skateboarders we can’t name them all. Craig also has an insane thirst for any books relating to peace theory, political views, and philosophical understandings. Basically, Craig is just a flying action sports buddhist monk.

ROBBIE TRIPP 
// DIRECTOR OF CONTENT MARKETING

Whatever you do, do you. That’s Robbie’s life motto and the reason behind the energy and enthusiasm that he brings to his work every day. His life’s journey has taken him to lay down roots in Las Vegas, Toronto, and California, and accomplishments include visiting 49 of the 50 United States in a single summer. When ‘TrippSwag’ isn’t writing or listening to Enya, he is helping spread this movement across the globe.

 

 

CLAIRE EASLEY 
// WRITER & EDITOR

If there’s one thing Claire loves, it’s getting the facts. After earning her stripes as a business news reporter in Washington, D.C., and publishing three books, this writer, editor, and researcher joined FTND because she believes getting information out can change the world. When she’s not digging up research or moving misplaced punctuation marks, she’s usually rowing, getting pulled to the park by her dog, or eating entire pizzas.

SARAH PURPLE // CONTRIBUTING BLOGGER

Sarah is a native of Connecticut and is in love with all things New England. Having trained in classical ballet until age 18, she then did a complete 180 with her life by moving to Washington, D.C. and getting her degree. Among her many passions are writing and real love, which coincide perfectly with her role as contributing blogger for FTND. When not slaving away over blog articles at her computer, she can be found with a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee in hand (like a true East Coaster), cooking, traveling, and desperately saving money for grad school.
