Biography

Dan fell in love with mindfulness in his early 20s when he was having what people now-a-days call a quarter life crisis. Everything seemed to be going great from the outside: a Harvard grad, working for LA times, great relationship, making good money, but something didn't feel right. A 14 hour bus ride; an encounter with an old friend who studied Taoism; a boat ride to Stone Island off to meet a monk who taught him how to meditate changed the course of his life. He went to India for 10 months where he practiced regularly and upon returning to NY became a middle school teacher and administrator where he taught both parents and kids ways to work more skillfully with their own minds. Since then, Dan has expanded his reach and has led mindfulness workshops for a variety of companies and organizations all over the United States including MIT, Jet.com, Gemini.com, NYU, etc.
