U of U Graduate Career Coach
As an undergrad at Montclair State University in New Jersey, Dan majored in Religion and Political science, minored in Philosophy and Psychology, volunteered as a DJ and mobile events coordinator at 90.3 WMSC, and ran the campus chapter of STAND: A Student Anti-Genocide Coalition. As a graduate student in the Department of Religion at Syracuse University, Dan stayed involved on and off campus, planning graduate student symposia and skill-building events, serving on a range of university committees, hosting a Saturday night music show on 88.3FM WAER, volunteering for advocacy groups and electoral campaigns, and hiking in the spectacular landscapes of upstate New York. As he moved through his grad program, Dan realized what he liked most was connecting and collaborating with a wide range of people at the university and in the community. He is excited to do continue doing so as a Graduate Career Coach.
In his spare time, you can find Dan exploring (and photographing) Utah’s incredible landscapes, checking out new places in Salt Lake City, running, biking, making pizza, and playing guitar. As a new Utahn, he plans to get back into archery and ham radio, learn to snowshoe, photograph moose in the canyons, build a vast reserve of SPF-rated clothing, and avoid mountain lions. He owns an undisclosed number of cowboy hats, and plans to acquire more.
