Daniel’s career has been split between working at Fortune 500 companies and working within the world of higher education.
These days, Daniel believes that we are now on an exponential pace of change. As a result of this new pace, Daniel is a firm believer in lifelong learning. The accelerated pace has also caused him to assert that all students need to be taught how to constantly pulse-check a variety of landscapes and emerging technologies – something he himself tries to practice on a regular basis. Daniel is constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost of going to college, while expanding access to obtaining the education one needs to not only survive, but to thrive.
