On dreaming big with Drew Jessup - Episode 61
This week on #FohrGround we got to virtually ‘sit down’ with menswear, travel and lifestyle influencer Drew Jessup. Originally from Maine, Drew has drifted to and from New York, but landed officially in Brooklyn about 5 years ago. His love for fashion began at an internship with KJP, and it was through connections he made during that experience that he knew he wanted to move to New York and pursue the vocation further.
In this episode Drew lets us in on his journey, the lessons learned along the way, and his love for photography, fashion and the beauty that’s created when the two are combined. Tune in to the full podcast to hear more about the nostalgia and romanticization of New York and its magic, that left us wanting more than ever to roam around our city.

In this episode, Taylor walks us through her professional marketing journey: from a college internship to being an influencer herself to being an influential part of developing one of the world's leading Instagram marketing platforms.
Tune in to the full episode to hear Taylor share her insights with us on the cornerstones of successful marketing and branding, advice on marketing your way through a pandemic, and how Later.com works behind the scenes.
Going above and beyond with Grace Murray - Episode 59
This week’s episode of #FohrGround features one of our very own - Fohr’s VP of Strategy, Grace Murray. Grace has been at Fohr for 7 years, and has worked mainly in sales up until this year when she transitioned into strategy.
Tune in to hear Grace share her insights with us on brand strategy, influencer strategy and how those things have shifted over time and adjusted to this new reality that we are living in today. The episode also hones in on the industry shift from an influencer mindset to an ambassador mindset, prioritizing authentic content and long term partnerships between brands and those who represent them.
