During that time, he provided music for all of McCann’s accounts, such as Microsoft, the U.S. Army, Verizon, MasterCard, Jose Cuervo and many more. In June of 2016, Mike joined Droga5 to co-head and start the music department with Ryan Barkan. During their time together, they helped launch the Google Pixel phone through a music-driven campaign that won the AMP award for most effective music in a campaign. The campaign included licensed music from Prince, Lou Reed, Anderson .Paak, tUnE-yArDs and more. Together they provided all the music for the Cyber Grand Prix–winning MailChimp campaign.
