Following in the footsteps of Fritz Lang, Dan wanted to be an architect... but it didn’t take. Since that minor lapse in decision making he went on to work as an assistant to Armando Iannucci, Nicholas Roeg, Victoria Pile and Alex de la Iglesia.

He has since worked as a creative at an advertising agency. While there he started directing his own projects and content for the agency. Dan has been shortlisted for Virgin Media awards in 2009 and 2012, and won Jury commendation for his short Pitta Patter in 2013. Dan has just directed his first pilot for BBC 3 "3 GUYS EAT" and recently won 1st Prize at the Straight 8 Industry shootout at Cannes with his short film Jamella.
