Dan joined SRPEDD in 2024 as a Public Transit Specialist. He supports agentic partnerships with community organizations, public officials, residents, and Regional Transit Authorities for inclusive co-designing of transit services.
Dan grew up in South Dennis, MA in a low income single-parent, multi-generational household, where he learned the importance of public transit at a young age to get to school, and be connected to community. Dan’s previously served as a voting member on the Massachusetts Board of Elementary & Secondary Education, where he had to leave his home at 3:00am to get to Board meetings in Malden due to limited transit availabilities leaving from the Cape. During his tenure, Dan had to make the difficult choice of affording private bus fares for meetings in lieu of having the money for school lunch.
Dan’s professional background includes service as a youth-social worker and housing specialist for unhoused QT-BIPOC youth in rural Vermont, partnering with first-generation students as a college advisor to navigate systemic barriers in college, supporting culturally responsive and affordable healthcare as an emergency room patient access representative, teaching organizational leadership at the University of Minnesota, and is a published researcher in youth voice, community engaged-leadership, and culturally responsive school leadership.
Dan is also grounded in the praxes of Disability justice, Indigenous Knowledge Systems, Youth Participatory Action Research and Antiracist education. Dan has experience in grant writing, where he successfully co-designed a Queer youth space in the Northeast Kingdom, the first of its kind in the region.
Dan received his B.A. from Saint Michael’s College in Secondary Education and Political Science, and his M.A. from the University of Minnesota in Organizational Leadership & Policy Development. He is currently working on his Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership from the University of Minnesota. Dan is an ardent believer in “working with,” and not, “for” the community.
