My name is Steve Olenski.

I am a talented, creative and passionate individual who understands creative marketing and the power of the spoken and written word and the impact it has on ALL of us.

Yadda, Yadda, Yadda...

Here's who I REALLY am: 

  • I realize I'm not everyone's cup of tea but...I love coffee.
  • I am a very creative person. 
  • I am an idea guy. 
  • I am an inquisitive person.
  • I love staying abreast of burgeoning technologies in the context of advertising & marketing
  • I understand that with 6 million visitors a month, Twitter is more than just a little blue bird. 
  • I am a very good writer.
  • A family legend says we are related to the famous author Joseph Conrad.
  • I am a people person. 
  • I need better listening skills. (just ask my wife)
  • I am very passionate. 
  • I enjoy making people laugh. 
  • I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV.
  • 4 out 5 dentists surveyed recommend me for their patients who chew gum.
  • I am a Scorpio by birth. 
  • I have retained entirely too much useless information, AKA trivia to last 3 lifetimes. 
  • I can tell you who won the Super Bowl in 1974 but I can't seem to remember my wedding anniversary. 
  • I don't like Piña Coladas BUT...
  • I also don't mind getting caught in the rain. 
  • I will NEVER be outworked.

My passion, my energy, my drive and my enthusiasm is true, real and undeniable. I don't drink, smoke or use drugs. I don't begrudge anyone who does however... it's just that's not me. The high I get from creating, writing, conceptualizing and destroying a pepperoni pizza is palpable. And no drug, man-made or otherwise could EVER duplicate, replicate or imitate the feeling and sensation that is derived from that.

"Steve Olenski has boundless enthusiasm and a passion for his work. He is a very determined person with tremendous desire."

“Steve Olenski is like Michael Keaton’s character in the movie “Night Shift”…an idea guy…edible paper…feed tuna fish mayonnaise. You want creativity? Steve is your man.”
- John Brazer, Director of Fun & Games, Philadelphia Phillies

"I’ve known Steve Olenski for over 15 years. As Executive Creative Director at one of the nation’s largest independent advertising agencies, I understand the power that copy and visuals can convey. I also know when it comes to creativity that some people “get it” and many simply don’t, even though their job titles may say otherwise. Steve is one of those individuals who “gets it,” because he understands very well how to use words and visionary thinking to engage people and reach them deeply."
- Rich Romig
Executive Creative Director
