Dan was a senior engineer with Intel Corporation. His job was to travel the world with the company’s senior executives, doing technical demonstrations on stage at events, and he was incredibly nervous about speaking on stage. He took a comedy class to get over the fear, and the comedy kind of took off.
Since leaving Intel to pursue comedy full-time, Dan has performed at two Democratic National Conventions, at a TED Conference, at several presidential inaugural galas, for President Obama, Donald Trump, Rudolph Giuliani, Michael Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton, Steve Wozniak, Arianna Huffington and for hundreds of similar luminaries.
