About Martin Sargent
Martin Sargent fell through a wormhole with Alexander Graham Bell’s nephew. And visited the year (approximately) 3000 with a time-traveling dentist. He's even spooned an elderly woman in a crop circle. Hard.

In his ten years hosting, writing, and producing television shows, Martin has done a lot of pretty cool stuff. And in his two years as a copywriter at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, he’s used the wisdom he’s gained from those experiences to produce a lot of pretty great work. At least according to Adobe, Chevy, Comcast, Haagen-Dazs, HP, NBA, Sonic Drive-In, Sprint, and Yahoo.

The world is lousy with copywriters. But only one of them has had his heart stopped on live TV by a guy calling himself “The Human Stun Gun”. And generally speaking, people who have come back from the dead write better copy.
