The Story So Far


Born and raised in England, Dan worked in entertainment at The Farm in London prior to coming to Los Angeles to get his MFA at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television.  After graduating, he joined the creative team of The Weinstein Company’s Production/Development department, before leaving to start his own non-scripted production company, Idiomatic Entertainment.  Dan created, produced and developed reality shows for VH1, Comedy Central, A&E, Animal Planet and HGTV until, in 2009, he returned to the scripted world with Oprah Winfrey's, Harpo Films.  As Vice President of Development he serviced Harpo’s exclusive HBO deal for TV series, movies and miniseries, as well as theatrical projects.

Today, after rattling around as a freelance director, editor, producer and writer for a number of companies, including Fishbowl Worldwide Media, Campanario Ent., and Lifetime, Dan is now a full time member of the Karga Seven Pictures team. As Head of Specialty Projects at Karga, Dan focuses on the creation of long form domestic and international investigative series and documentaries as well as scripted projects for all major networks and markets.

(P.S: Hey, this is Dan. I don't know who wrote this weird insurance seminar grade bio, but they really need to get out there and live a little. Let's just hang out and chat. We can gram it. Sound better? Good. See ya.)
