He is a former Chair of the Wellington Community Arts Council;  founding trustee of the Fringe Arts Trust; former freelance publicist, production manager and producer of independent theatre; electronic  ticketing systems expert and consultant; former General Manager of the  Paramount picture theatre and ZMFM radio DJ.

Dan is currently Fundraising & Special Projects Manager for Downstage  Theatre; cinema critic for the Capital Times and ‘Nine to  Noon’ (Radio New Zealand National); book reviewer for Nine to Noon; and for the last six years has  been Wellington Manager for ‘V Energy 48 Hours Furious Filmmaking’ competition.

He also writes for and is currently studying for a  Post Graduate Diploma in Business and Administration at Massey


Dan considers himself to be an evangelist, provocateur, enabler,  facilitator, supporter and yogi for the arts and artists.
