who is this guy?

My name is Michael Franzese. I am a creative professional, what I call an Ideaologist, someone constantly in pursuit of the next big idea. I am always looking for new opportunities and if you're reading this maybe you're looking for someone like me.

I have wide range of experience in advertising and brand building. My skills are vast, but also current and in certain areas very deep. My strategic skills include repositioning and launching brands for clients like King Pharmaceuticals, Alcon, Alberto-Culver, Jim Beam Brands, Wm. Wrigley Jr., Inc., and Newell-Rubbermaid. I have designed and developed everything from post cards to television commercials.

I have spent my career going from large agencies like BBDO, DDB and Leo Burnett to small agencies such as The Ungar Group and everywhere in between. I am a hands-on kind of guy who has managed people, timelines and budgets and I actually enjoy interacting with clients.

The challenges of marketing and advertising anything in this economy are many, but I believe that creativity is the key that can elevate any company, product or person to the levels for which they strive.
