Hi, I’m Dan, a designer and researcher BASED OUT of philadelphia

Currently, I’m a Senior Experience Designer at Think Company in Philadelphia, where I focus on strategy, information architecture, research, and wireframing as part of a cross-functional team. Previously, I was at O3 World and Monetate.  

I’m currently writing and speaking about how identity and marginality figure into ethical design.

My research is rooted in anthropology and ethnomusicology. My ethnographic research has explored the intersection of identity formation and creative work, especially performance. I’ve spent time learning from musicians about their craft, following performers from small town Virginia jam sessions to smoky Beijing nightclubs. I earned a BA in Sociocultural Anthropology from James Madison University and an MA in Ethnomusicology from Boston University.

I like to play music and game with my friends and dig into books on my morning commute.
