Made in the Bronx. Dan grew up in NYC and was a former art director and creative director at some the largest NY advertising agency in the country and a creative director at CTW Sesame Street. Dan made a transition from the ad business to TV commercial director and became a member of the Directors Guild of America and SAG/AFTRA as an actor. At the Directors Guild, he co-chaired close to ten years on the DGA's EDSC, a committee supporting diversity for DGA members of color. Next career move Dan is pursuing is episodic TV directing in doing so, he has shadowed many network TV shows learning the ropes. Dan is also a very creative writer and wrote a TV series that was a hit on Lifetime TV but was never credited or compensated due to an unscrupulous partner. Sad but true, he got screwed.
Dan attended Pratt, Visual Arts, NYU and served in the US Military.
