Dan is very excited to join Fusion as a teacher of Math and Science. Prior to discovering Fusion, Dan taught math at a charter school in Hayward and at a charter school in Chicago. This followed two years of working as a special education aide, before which Dan earned a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan. Besides his partner Melissa’s matching to UCSF for her residency, Dan believes his migration from Michigan to San Francisco via Chicago was also influenced by his destiny to ride the waves of the Pacific Ocean. Still en route to this destiny, Dan can be found on weekends getting owned by waves similar to the ones he envisions himself gracefully surfing one day soon. Back on land, he may be seen sure-footedly orchestrating his pick-up soccer teams or reposed in golden gate park, soaking up literature and, occasionally, sun.
