Name: Patrick Hornung

Title: Media Specialist

Location: Kansas City, MO

Bio: I was born and raised in Kansas City before attending Texas Christian University for my undergrad (Horns Down). At TCU, I earned my degree in finance, while also studying political science. After graduation I moved back to Kansas City to work for Sarah Hoeller and the rest of the AxMedia team.

What you do at Axiom/how you serve our clients: One of the great things about my job is that I get to assist in almost every aspect of the media buying process – a de facto utility infielder. I handle the shipping of our clients’ television and radio commercials, along with aiding in the planning and execution of each campaign’s media buy. I’m proud of the work we produce for our clients and am honored to be part of it.

How I got my start at Axiom: I reached out to Sarah Hoeller during the spring of my senior year in search of an opportunity to get involved in the political consulting industry. I’ll be forever grateful that she took a chance on someone without any political experience and will always be proud to say I work for Axiom. In an age where everything is shifting to digital, I’m glad that hand-written notes still serve a purpose.

Fun fact: While in school, a few friends and I made a point to travel to a TCU road game at every Big 12 school. Nothing beats Norman, Oklahoma on a Saturday night in November with a playoff spot on the line.
