Dan Sorgen is an ACD/CD/Copywriter that's overseen brand launches for billion-dollar companies, taught ad school classes, led multiple creative teams, won new business, won awards, won a wife, worked with a lot of really smart people, dinged the culture a few times, and never returned to NY in the winter. He is also the Founder of SpecBank, a source for agency scripts you can make for your reel. Directors, listen up! And this is just one of two great chats!

Dan's work has been featured in Cannes, One Show, Clio, AdWeek, Creativity, Campaign Live, Huffington Post, ABC News, NBC News, New York Magazine, USA Today, Fortune, NBC, and elsewhere. We did some great work together at Saatchi LA, where Dan works presently. He also teaches the Advanced Concepts Book Shop portfolio class.
