Dan is a Senior Consultant for the People Powered Results team.

Dan joins the PPR team with a background in design and a range of experience in frontline and social change organisations. Dan is interested in projects that both put relationships at the centre of their work and support people to take action in their own lives. Having spent time working in Pupil Referral Units in London, Dan is particularly curious about projects working on youth exclusion.

Prior to Nesta, Dan worked for Participatory City, a community organisation working with residents in Barking and Dagenham to kickstart practical projects and grow a culture of participation across the borough. This role gave him the opportunity to combine his experience in co-production and hands-on making as well as the chance to learn different research approaches and develop new skills, like coaching.

Outside of work Dan spends his time cycling around London, trying to get better at bouldering or listening to podcasts. He survived lockdown by growing tomato plants and learning to crochet!
