The very first thing you will notice about Caleb-Michael is his work ethic. The second is his humility. He jumps in feet first and is unafraid to iterate and pivot as a project evolves. In fact he will offer audience and zeitgeist insights that will often change a project for the better. His passion for digital and social strategy is second only to his passion for his team. He puts people first and prioritizes a well functioning team. Recognizing that a team that works well together produces unstoppable and undeniable deliverables!
