Dan is a multimedia documentary maker who focuses primarily on criminal justice issues. His recent projects include an installation project on defence attorneys entitled “Defenders,” and a short film about policing and racial profiling in Toronto called “Crisis of Distrust.” He recently finished an MFA in Documentary Media at Ryerson University, where he became interested in interactive doc projects. After finishing school, he interned as a UX consultant for Helios Design Labs on their documentary project, “Offshore.” He also sometimes teaches the history of video games to undergrads in Sheridan College’s BA Game Design program. He’s interested in the critical intersection of documentary, interactivity, and gaming. He is based in Toronto, Canada.

Dan thinks his favourite activities are probably cycling and conversation. He says he likes to talk about architecture, history, short stories, politics, Star Trek, Andre Tarkovsky, podcasts, JRPG’s, and other things, preferably over coffee or beer. He is only slightly uncomfortable writing this part of the bio, but he considers it important to include a bit of personality. He’s excited to hang out in Copenhagen with all of you fine people!
