In 2018, Dan left a decade-long career in consulting to establish a new foundation for government that he believed would support the future of education and work. This ended up becoming 2 solutions: APoll01 Nation and APoll01 (the software that will automate APoll01 Nation).
Dan is a mission-driven strategist and architect focused on changing the way we create, validate, and distribute content or knowledge on a global scale. He believes that our society is on the brink of massive changes in the way that people work and learn, and that we must start migrating people, governments, schools, and companies onto a new, agile foundation of technology in order to meet the needs of each individual. We cannot afford to continue with band-aid solutions on an outdated foundation that no longer works.
Dan believes that this shift must start with knowledge, as people need to start preparing for life after automation. In order to achieve this, he believes we need to provide the tools for people to start teaching others, assigning value to the knowledge, and recognizing the transfer of that knowledge. He believes that the next booming economy will be built around openly accessible knowledge and education.
Dan enjoys exploring ways in which knowledge and work can be tightly integrated so that individuals can easily navigate complex and overwhelming work, education, healthcare, and political environments. He focuses on designing large scale solutions that can support a single user or an entire world of users operating within a single platform, while maintaining privacy at every level, both for users and organizations.
Dan believes in systems where equality (and access) is enabled by design. He believes that ownership of your digital identity will unlock your future and accelerate self actualization. He believes in creating a unique experience for every person, allowing for individuals to achieve upward mobility while shifting quickly to find purpose and meaning in their work and life. His systems are designed to enable movement - mimicking water - while keeping each person engaged and in a peak state of flow. His mission is to end poverty, provide open access to education, fight for liberty and equality, empower individuals through voice and data, build lasting bonds in the community, and open (or shine a light on) new channels for people to grow and find themselves.
