Murphy Nasica Announces Creative Director Joey Parr as New Partner

Murphy Nasica & Associates (MNA), one of the largest, winningest political consulting firms in the nation, today introduced their new company partner: Creative Director Joey Parr.

As MNA’s Creative Director, Parr has overseen the writing, producing, directing, and buying of all of the firm’s television, radio, mail, and digital advertising over the last five years.

Parr’s eye-catching, cinematic ads have helped shape the Texas political landscape. In the last year alone, he wrote, produced, and directed breakthrough TV and radio spots for state legislators Steve Allison, Ernest Bailes, Keith Bell, Dennis Bonnen, Charlie Geren, Cody Harris, Ken King, Lyle Larson, Chris Paddie, and Kel Seliger. Parr also produced the San Antonio Firefighters’ winning bilingual spots for ballot Props A, B, & C.

“Joey is a top-level strategist and a master of political TV,” said Craig Murphy. “Even when he knows the outcome of a massive campaign depends entirely on the TV spot he produces, Joey coolly delivers. He doesn’t react to the pressure, he applies it.”

Parr also pioneered the 6-second political spot – delivering quick, less-skippable jabs on digital platforms. His television and radio work is nominated for 14 national awards from Campaigns & Elections Magazine. A client once called him “the Spielberg of political advertising.”

“Our candidates’ success determines the success of millions of Americans,” said Parr. “As a new partner at Murphy Nasica, I look forward to helping our nation’s best leaders achieve their vision for the future.”

Parr is a graduate of Texas Christian University, where he earned his Bachelor’s in Political Science and Radio/TV/Film. Parr also earned a Master’s in Public Affairs at the LBJ School at the University of Texas and previously served as a Chief of Staff in the Texas House of Representatives. Parr’s independent films have been featured at film festivals across the country.
