Christopher Franzese has been creating digital experiences and brand communications for nearly twenty years, from leading massive e-commerce sites like AT&T Wireless to defining purpose-driven brand platforms like Tylenol.

His work has been recognized with Cannes Lions, One Show, Art Director's Club, Clio and Effie awards. WPP, the holding company that owns roughly a third of the advertising industry, has repeatedly showcased his campaigns as among the best in their network.

When not glowing in front of a screen, Christopher can often be found only if you have a map and compass. He is a Wilderness First Responder and guide for beginner to advanced adventurers alike.

Whether in the office or the backcountry, he's found nothing so satisfying as helping his clients go where they've always dreamed and do what they've never dared.
