6 questions with Highwire's SVP, Integrated Digital

Dan knows what it takes to pull together a comprehensive and integrated digital campaign, and how to take the perfect school picture!

What’s your area of interest and expertise?

I grew up in digital, including audience strategy, buying, tech, social and analytics. The truth is I’m all over the board, always trying to find unknown areas in which to feel uncomfortable.  If you see me and I’m not learning, you’re seeing me unhappy.

What work makes you most proud?
When I see folks I’ve trained turn into successful, thoughtful, kind people that outshine me, I always get a jealous smile on my face. In our business, people are the very atoms that build everything else.
What did you do prior to Highwire?

I’ve worked at a few giant agencies, but also helped build two smaller companies from scratch, both in tech and on the digital agency side. Love working at nimble, active shops.

If you weren’t working in marketing, what would you be doing instead?
Teaching. Both of my parents were teachers, I’ve taught a bit of college, and would love to help struggling high school students get where they deserve to go.
What I’m doing when I’m not working…
I really love to get deep into movies, always have a novel close at hand, make music, and have been obsessed with muay Thai for 20 years. These days I have to fit all of those into the 20 minutes I have when not raising my two boys.
Where are you from?
Gainesville, Florida (go Gators!). Dad owned a farm before becoming a professor at UF.
