The student handbook for the ETC students who entered into the program in August 2020.
Dan was born in Washington D.C. and grew up right outside the city in the quaint suburb of Fort Washington MD. His passion for visual media developed in high school through his video and photography classes. Whether making films with friends or running around town Dan could usually be found sticking a camera in someone's face. It was in college that he began exploring digital media and interactive narrative. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Cinema and Photography from Ithaca College in 1999. With a solemn vow to his new love the computer Dan decided to sit behind one for the next few years as a Multimedia Designer/Developer. Dan moved to Pittsburgh in the summer of 2004 to join the ETC with the hopes of breaking some of the boundaries between the virtual world and physical space. He has also worked on numerous projects at the ETC blurring the lines between technology and reality.
Dan has been lucky enough to have had the joy of meeting John Stamos. He looks forward to brightly spreading said joy. Dan is currently pursuing a career in the educational or serious game market.
