How Red Gaskell got a job with Casey Neistat! | Ep.158

Red Gaskell is a director, photographer, and marketer. Red got his start working on the brand marketing side for a company called Everlane for 4 years building their social reach to new levels and adding so much value to the company. Eventually, Red chose to take a leap of faith and left Everlane to focus on becoming a full-time freelance creator. Shortly after, Red quickly got an opportunity to take on a full-time role building the marketing for Casey Neistat’s latest venture 368 – a creator resource space in NYC. Red has gone on to work with brands such as Airbnb, Floyd, Year & Day, Pitchfork, Vans, Teen Vogue, and Snapchat.
