Dan became a working writer while studying for his BFA in film at Ryerson University. Starting out as a writer’s assistant to the man behind Contour, Jeffrey Alan Schechter, he has since earned credits in children’s television, worked on family and action features, interactive projects, and has written animation, live action, and hybrids of the two. Produced writing credits include Freefonix for the BBC, Grossology and Di-Gata Defenders for Nelvana, and Hot Wheels: Battle Force Five for Mattel. Most recently, Dan has story-coordinated season 3 of the tween series Overruled! for Shaftesbury, and is jr. story editing for an in-development live-action series for E1 Entertainment and YTV. He is also working on his own project pitches, and can’t wait to get his stuff out there one day.
Dan has extensive experience in family entertainment, but also loves action, horror, and comedy. And sci-fi. And thrillers. He knows how to spot a good story, and has great insight into how to fix those stories that are…well…less than good. He’s also a senior reviewer at Contour At The Movies. And he’s British, so he talks funny.
