Danny "zonic" Sørensen (born July 30, 1986) is a Danish professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive coach and former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike player.

Arguably the greatest Danish 1.6 player of all time, zonic had huge success with several Danish teams, winning around 110,000 dollars in prize money. He was one of the founding members of the legendary mTw.dk, one of the most dominant 1.6 teams in history. He retired as teams started transitioning over to Global Offensive. He joined Team Dignitas as a coach in July 2015 before returning to active play for mTw. [1] After an unsuccessful return as a player, he joined Team Questionmark as a coach. He founded Astralis with the rest of the players in January 2016, and has since then helped them to become one of the greatest teams in Global Offensive. [2][3]
