chief content officer
Adventure Junkie

Marketing is a data challenge first, then a creative one.
As a founder of DRUM’s content production studio, Michael Cruz is a right- and left-brained creative, blending strategy with precise execution. He has won numerous awards for clients including 3M, The Wall Street Journal, Puralotor and Babbel. His technical proficiency in directing, editing and design are surpassed only by his ability to build effective campaigns and develop content strategies for top brands. 
If not exploring new ideas in the studio, Michael is probably on an adventure piloting, boating, skydiving or spelunking in some dark cave.
