Dan’s mission is to positively impact health and the environment, full stop. After earning a BA in biology from Lehigh University, he began his career in healthcare as a dentist earning a DMD from Rutgers (UMDNJ) and completing his residency at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. Growing a practice brand from scratch, he developed his passion for venture development along with the mission of improving individual health. He continued to broaden his scope into public health/social innovation, earning a MPH from Yale University School of Public Health. Dan’s passionate about plant based nutrition as a solution to many of the world’s largest problems. Personally, Dan savors life with his wife and two kids. He’s a movie fanatic and wishes he could translate his ability to retain the minutiae of movies to his professional life. He loves to be active and is an avid athlete and fitness buff despite enjoying a beer here and there.
