About Danny

I've been writing short stories and other writings since I was a teenager, always with the intention of compiling these writings into a autobiography account of growing up in Central New York in the 1970's and 1980's. Just recently, I have had a couple of my stories published in an online literary magazine, and Penguin Publishing is currently looking at a group of my stories as well.

After graduating Cum Laude from Boston's prestigious Emerson College with a BA in Creative Writing and Literature, I sold a script to NBC's Seinfeld, before earning my Massachusetts teacher's certifications as a Secondary English teacher, and later as a television production teacher. where I fostered an Emmy Award winning program of studies for a large high school, and where I wrote and copyrighted my own text book for high school television production courses. While working at the high school, I taught script writing, public speaking and literature, taught students the art of copyediting for broadcast and publication, and assisted students with their college admissions letters. On the side, I ran my small business where I researched and wrote academic and economic reports for clients. Now, with the company AAA Digital Productions, I have produced sports videos for a professional football team, written production scripts and continue to work video projects, while working with a couple of local colleges as an adjunct professor.

I've enjoyed working with students for over two decades, and I especially like to help people find their "inner writer", while practicing proper grammar, tone, and structure. I have the degrees, certificates, and licenses, but more importantly, I have the experience of having written fiction and non-fiction both academically and professionally. I have been called an "excellent extemporaneous speaker", I am quite adept at public speaking and speech writing, and I can help you become a better, more complete writer, and a more commanding speaker.

It's early in the academic year, so let's get you started on a path that will lead to your success in writing, speaking and beyond! Get in touch so that we can talk about your particular needs and expectations, and so that we can schedule a meeting.
