About Dan

He has performed in & produced live stand-up comedy shows in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Las Vegas and more.
After a lifetime enchanted by audio comedy from the likes of Steve Martin and Adam Sandler, Dan founded his first podcast “Fouradio” in 2012 and improved on that idea with Rock N Roll Cheeseburger in 2014. Beginning mid-2015, Dan started writing & producing web and television content for burgeoning tech / social media / entertainment start-up, Coded Friends.
