I'm Daniel Lobatón, ad nerd, comic book nerd, and currently Creative Director at Saatchi NY.
I was born in Lima, Perú, but advertising had other plans in mind. So far I've worked for AdAge Top 10 agencies in Paris, France, Kansas City, Missouri and Austin, Texas.
Since I moved to NY, I secretly hum the Mad Men theme song every time I walk to work.
The biggest lesson about ideas and advertising I probably took from Star Wars: "Do or do not. There is no try."
