Danny grew up the son of two preachers in Texas, New Jersey, and North Carolina. After college he worked five years as a children’s magazine editor. He discovered a passion for education while volunteering in the Chicago Public Schools through 826CHI, a nonprofit creative writing and tutoring center. In 2014, through 826’s NYC chapter, Danny helped with a series of playwriting workshops in a Blue Engine classroom at Bronx Leadership Academy II. He looks forward to returning to the school as a BETA, learning from a team of like-minded educators, and building classrooms where students can tell their stories and prepare for successful futures.
