Current Information


A Toronto native, Dan holds a BA in Creative Writing with a concentration in playwriting from Concordia. After graduation, Dan continued to write, but eventually found himself teaching Business Communication at Fanshawe College in London, ON. When the irony of teaching a business course proved to be too thick, Dan quit and decided to pursue writing full time. His first television script, Bush League, was accepted into the National Screen Institute’s “Totally Television” Program in 2009, and shortly thereafter Dan began providing script coverage for Muse Entertainment, as well as writing additional materials for their productions of The Kennedys and Being Human, among others. Most recently, Dan optioned his first feature, Death Rattle, to EMA Films.
