Dan is an accomplished storyteller, speaker, and comedian. With humour and experience, he covers a variety of topics, leaving audiences engaged, entertained, and energized. Learn more below about what to expect at Dan's speaking engagements.
TRAVEL AND ADVENTURES
For over a decade, Dan and his white cane have been backpacking and adventuring across the world. He discusses what he's learned as a disabled traveller, from discovering the meaning of inclusion in Ireland, to exploring Morocco's hidden secrets on foot, to watching the sunrise from the Acropolis in Athens.
GAP YEAR JOURNEYS
Dan is an enthusiastic supporter of taking a gap year. His stories of making lifelong friends, getting in (and out!) of trouble, and embracing self-reliance will teach students how to explore outside their comfort zones, and take what they've learned back to campus.
DEALING WITH ISOLATION
Like many people with disabilities, Dan has lots of experience living in isolation. For everyone, the COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely difficult and a brand new source of stress. Learn from Dan's stories on how to persevere, and how to empathize and understand one another's loneliness. Hone new skills you can take with you when the world returns to some form of normalcy.
I’ve worked with Dan in stand up comedy for a couple of years now and he is an incredible and important voice in disability advocacy. He’s hilarious and skilled at breaking down misconceptions in a poignant and personable way.
