• Michelle McCudden

    Brand marketing leader. Audience & Digital behavior expert. Problem solver.


    I loved the internet so much, I got a Ph.D. in it. OK, not in "the internet," but in Communication and New Technology, which is more or less the same thing. My research focused on how fan communities function online - what it means for people who love the same thing to connect and communicate with one another.


    I brought that expertise into roles in the agency world and then client-side into tech, working with brands to create content and experiences that people love and drawing on that deep knowledge of culture every day.
