Dan Rollman is the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of RecordSetter, a global media company showcasing the best in human achievement. Its flagship property, RecordSetter.com, hosts 50,000 user-generated world record videos submitted from 100 countries. The New Yorker says it's "to the Guinness World Records as Wikipedia is to the Encyclopedia Britannica."
He is co-author of The RecordSetter Book of World Records, an Amazon Top 100 Book, and has appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (nine times), CNN, MSNBC, NPR, BBC and CBS Sunday Morning. He served as executive producer on That's a Record!, a NBC TV pilot, and RecordSetter Kids, a 40-episode series produced with DreamWorksTV.
Since getting hired at Fallon NY in 1999 as a junior creative, Dan has been a copywriter/creative director for 18 years, with two Super Bowl commercials (Pepsi, Emerald Nuts) and a bunch of shiny statues (Cannes Lions, Clios, LIAA, One Show and an Emmy) to his credit. While working at Goodby, Silverstein + Partners in San Francisco, he helped the agency win Adweek's Campaign of the Year honors (HP and Comcast) in back-to-back years.
Dan created The Sabbath Manifesto, a project designed to carve out a weekly pause from technology, and was part of team behind The National Day of Unplugging, an annual tech-free holiday now observed by thousands. The movement has sparked dialogue and action across religious communities worldwide, and been covered by CNN, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
He interned at Late Night With Conan O'Brien, spending time as Conan's assistant and appearing in multiple comedy sketches. He also had a speaking role in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, receiving credit as "Rowdy College Kid #1."
