Leonard Rader


Leonard is a copywriter at Sanders/Wingo in Austin. So many hilarious videos in his portfolio, including “Actually Doing Something” for Volunteer March (above). Almost painful it’s 2018 truthiness. Fun dialogue all over his site, which isn’t always the easiest to pull off in Adland. Dig it.

Carsyn McKenzie


Carsyn is an art director in Austin, previously at Sanders/Wingo. (Don’t miss her Illustration page—she’s a killer illustrator, too.) Her “Nothing Punny” campaign for the United Way of Omaha brings pun zingers “to life” in disgusting, fleshy san serif nastiness. So gross. But so good.

Dominique Curtis


Dominique is a senior copywriter at R/GA in Austin. Since her last post on MC back on 09.29.16, Dominique has made her awesome (and hilarious) site even more awesome (and hilarious). Don’t miss her musical featuring Drew Barrymore for Crocs, “Come As You Are.” Seriously, Crocs. Also, be sure to check out Nyan Cat Man on her Personal Projects page. So dumb. So genius!

Definitely time for an update.

Dominique Curtis


Dominique is a copywriter at Sanders\Wingo in Austin, Texas. Every once in a while, you see a scene in a spot in a fellow copywriter’s portfolio and think to yourself, “He/she wrote that so that he/she could be on-set for that scene.” The above for Dominique’s AT&T spot featuring Jenifer Lewis qualifies. Dig it.

The Holiday Card: The Movie

As an ad agency copywriter, there’s no more terrifying assignment than the annual agency holiday card. Unless you turn that assignment into a video about how terrifying it is, instead of actually making the card. Tip o’ the hat to Sanders\Wingo. Nailed it.

Jeff Richey


Jeff is a senior copywriter at Sanders\Wingo in Austin. (His site was submitted to MC by Alan McCoy, big ups!) Lots of cool projects in his portfolio for brands like Republic Tequila (above), AT&T (featuring Paul George), and Run For The Water—a charity run in Austin that gives one person in Burundi, Africa clean drinking water for life for each entry. Good times.

Chris Vandersall


Chris is a junior copywriter at GSD&M in Austin. The first project in his portfolio is an adorbs holiday spot for Walgreens called “Cookies For Santa.” MC’s favorite part? The minivan cranking a spinout into its parking space out front of a Walgreens. Which means they had to hire a professional stunt driver to do that. Which is just rad.

CWs Wanted: SandersWingo

Shanteka Sigers, SVP/ECD at SandersWingo in Austin (and friend of MC), is looking for copywriters. From Shanteka: “SandersWingo was founded by David Sanders, a copywriter. He once got a 92-second radio spot on the air. He went on daily two-hour hikes and ate whole grains in the ’80s. Most people ate cocaine for breakfast in the ’80s. And most importantly, David Sanders taught that our job is to make things happen right now. I need copywriters in Austin and El Paso. All levels. You’ll work on big brands like AT&T, Burger King and MINI. You’ll work on small brands like Run For The Water, El Paso Electric and the District Attorney of El Paso. The DA let us create an award-winning domestic violence brochure hidden inside a lipstick case, and feng shui his waiting area. I’m looking for some swashbuckling, enterprising, David Sanders-esque copywriters that want to make things happen. Healthy diet optional.” Interested? Contact Shanketa at the address below.

Sarah Weigl

Sarah is a copywriter at Sanders/Wingo in Austin. (Her site was submitted by Nikki Lott at Integer. High-five, Nikki.) One of the things MC enjoys most, going through a CW’s portfolio, is seeing their personality come through the work. Spend 30 seconds on Sarah’s site, and you see it. Bad-ass. Also, be sure to check out her rad blog Badder Homes & Gardens, with Nikki and Krista Hogg. Awesome.
