About Daniel

I am currently a head teacher for an arts program at the prestigious Dalton School in New York City where I have developed and executed original creative classes for children in grades K-5. These classes in photography, drama, and film focus on creation, collaboration, independence, and dependability as students design their own projects and assist each other in bringing them to life. As a strong believer in this progressive model of education and learning through experience, I appreciate the initiative that tutoring provides in a student's journey.

Prior to Dalton, I led a program at Kaiser Permanente that utilized drumming as a community building tool and included a scripted play, classroom workshops, and parents' evening. The program was designed to steer at-risk students away from gang culture in Los Angeles by giving them the tools to manage their conflicts in a peaceful way. Taking this to the schools proved to be a success as students were given the opportunity to participate in improvised theatrical scenes where the empowered bystander was able to use different given tactics to diffuse a conflict before it became violent. With this, in conjunction with our steps “Stop, Feel, Think, Choose, Act” as a prevention model, we were able to experience real change in the culture of an at-risk school.
