A Chicago lifer (thus far), Daniel was born and raised in Buffalo Grove, attended Buffalo Grove High School, and graduated from Lake Forest College and began his career as a middle and high school instructor. His college years were important because of two projects he launched: a reinvigorated Hillel chapter and an academic consulting business. After dedicating four years to the classroom, Dan became a regional fundraiser for Education Pioneers, which identifies great talent - eager to make a difference in the social sector - to help all students have the best education. He is currently a member of the Association for Fundraising Professionals, a Scholar Coach for One Million Degrees, and a member of the Alain Locke Associate Board and Lake Forest College Young Alumni Council. Since graduating college, Dan has been deeply connected to YLD and JUF, and he is excited for the skills, will, and value he will bring to the Board.
