The Essential List: Dan Kelleher
Dan Kelleher is the CCO at Deutsch New York. He’s also, we suspect, a little bit of a tech nerd (just wait until you hear about his homemade soundsystem). 

He joined the agency from KBS in May of last year and has Lions, One Show Gold Pencils, Andys, D&AD Pencils and a recognition from Tribeca Film Festival under his belt. But what keeps him ticking from day-to-day? We picked his brains for this Essential List to find out.
