Mike Governale

I am an Interactive Art Director with 15+ years of experience creating digital ad campaigns and communications.

The internet doesn’t care whether you’re a Fortune 500 global force or a start-up—and neither do I. While in the ad agency world I got to work with giants like BMW Financial Services, Delta Private Jets, Lufthansa, Kodak, Xerox, Green Mountain Coffee, Mederma®, Excellus BCBS, and Constellation Brands. But I’m also quite passionate about helping local non-profits put their best face forward and have worked with the Rochester City Ballet, Rochester Cycling Alliance, Landmark Society of Western New York, and WALL\THERAPY.

If your online image is important to you (and it should be) let’s talk.
