He is pictured here at Mt. Vernon to the left. He is the founder and director of The Breed's Hill Institute, an educational non-profit focused on teaching the history of American Liberty. But his career has a history all its own. Dan has worked in commercial film and theater in roles including writer, director and actor. "But," he likes to stress "only once did I do all three at the same time." In recent years, Dan acted as historical consultant to Ian Kahn who plays George Washington on AMC’s TURN. Dan has previously been involved in bringing a large first run musical to the stage and directing a period independent film project. While searching for new ways to inform and educate people about our Nation's Founding he was introduced to the world of 1st person historic interpretation. It was a natural fit to combine his performance and writing skills with his passion for historic research. "I wanted to make our national history come alive for people and when I realized I was approaching the same age that Washington was when he assumed command of the army I saw an opportunity to take a historic figure people think they know and show them a different picture.
