ABOUT

Nat Whitten has spent the majority of his professional life as an award-winning creative director and copywriter, most notably with Chiat/Day, his own shop, Weiss, Whitten, Stagliano, and Nat Whitten Incorporated for project work on both the agency and client sides.  He’s been named one of the “top freelancers in the industry” by Adweek Magazine, and has lectured on the field at USC, NYU, St. John’s University, the School of Visual Arts, Adhouse, Iona College and Temple University.  In addition to his advertising work, Whitten is the author of four books delving into politics, philosophy, and meditation, as well as a new musical set in an accounting firm.
