He was among the first in the field to monetize Internet-based viral content, and he has successfully developed, produced and deployed online content for local and federal government as well small businesses as well as Fortune 500 Companies like Nestlé.

In 2009, in addition to being selected as one of 30 of the most influential thought leaders under 30, Rothe-Kushel supervised the Los Angeles production of the top of the broadcast for the 81st Annual Academy Awards.
