Quick Fact: Dan doesn't eat anything that cast a shadow.

Dan has been involved with TGH since 2002 and on staff since the summer of 2010. After spending several years as a Legislative Aide to a U.S. Congressman in Washington, DC, he returned to Boston as the Technology Director at Fenway High School. In 2006, he was hired by the Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School in Dorchester to help implement the largest middle school 1:1 laptop initiative in New England. Nothing is more important to Dan than his two adorable little girls (and the Sox winning the WS in 2004).
