DIRECTOR OF MESSAGING ANd ONLINE ENGAGEMENT
Since joining the FPL team in July 2007, Dan has had at least six job titles and been part of the organization’s most exciting achievements – from organizing a nationally televised Presidential candidate forum to passing the Affordable Care Act to defeating discriminatory religious exemptions bills in Georgia. Along the way he has written everything from talking points to op-eds to sign-on letters, prepped faith leaders for interviews with the most blustery pundits on cable news, designed opinion polls and married one of his former FPL coworkers. He credits his family, his Lutheran upbringing and his study of the civil rights movement for giving him the thirst for justice that led him to this line of work.
Before FPL, Dan taught remedial literacy in rural Arkansas as a Teach For America corps member, then studied investigative reporting, magazine editing and strategic communications at the Missouri School of Journalism. A long time ago, he got a B.A. in history at the College of William & Mary.
Dan grew up in Virginia and returns there often to visit family. After work you can find him eating chili at Washington Nationals games or slowly jogging short distances around Capitol Hill.
