A Bit About Dan

Pronouns are he/him, but I’ve also got a few more nouns. 

In the professional sphere, I’m a small business owner, an investor and an instigator of do-goodery.  My craft is digital marketing where I have served as Chief Search Artist at BFO, the award-winning agency I co-founded back in 2009. 

But the world is bigger than clicks and sales. At my core I am a conscious capitalist. That means I believe that businesses have the responsibility to serve all stakeholders; the environment, the employees, and our communities. 

I’m in the middle of writing the biggest chapter of my story but the ‘why’ behind it all is clear, my purpose on this earth is to spread joy and prosperity.
