This is where I grew up. I created a 360 campaign for Red Bull Cola - the most misunderstood drink on the planet. The campaign won awards in Austria, but unfortunately the drink wasn't marketed in the US. Beyond that, I conceived the gamut for Red Bull energy drink: radio, TV, print, digital, experiential, direct mail, guerrilla, naming projects, et al.

I also worked on a two Qualcomm brands, "Swagg" a digital coupon app and "Tagg" a dog tracking technology.
