David Buddenhagen - Global Head of Brand
With agency and client side experience covering a wide range of projects both moving and static, in traditional and new technology, David has led teams to build powerful and lasting consumer experiences for companies ranging from non profits and start ups to members of the Fortune Global 500. His life long interest in music and film has afforded him the opportunity to collaborate with artists from Alice Cooper to MKTO. Being initially brought in to consult on brand development, he quickly realised Pirate Studios’ desires were not far from his own; to reinforce the fabric of music culture by providing the world with better tools and spaces; [to] inspire creativity and help musicians become the future of music. Accepting the offer to lead brand for Pirate Studios was an easy choice.
