Chesapeake Bay Program Office
Dan joined the UMCES/Chesapeake Bay Team (CBP) team from the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay where he worked for 7 years leading on-the-ground restoration programs, like trash cleanups and tree plantings, and building and managing the Alliance's web presence and portfolio. He graduated from Towson University with a BS in Organismal Biology and Ecology. As a young kid, Dan started teaching himself web development which grew from a hobby to a focused desire to learn new skills and technologies. Through IAN, Dan will be working with the CBP as a web developer on their suite of websites. Born and raised in Baltimore, Dan loves his home state of Maryland and it's close ties to the Chesapeake Bay. He and his wife just bought an old farm in Baltimore County near Loch Raven Reservoir with their two cats and 11 chickens where they look forward to many home renovations. With any free time, Dan enjoys backpacking, homesteading, sailing (in the Baltimore harbor), and volunteering his web skills with non-profits.
