In 2010, after eleven years of working in the DC area, Dan returned to Canada. For five of those years he headed the DC office of a government contractor where he dealt with top Pentagon brass and senior law enforcement officials (including the Joint Terrorism Task Force). In 2006 he was one of three finalists for the “Innovation of the Year Award” by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). During his final years in DC he formed a partnership with Dr. Bruce Merrifield, the creator of three pieces of key US legislation that still drive American innovation; the Limited Liability Company (LLC), the Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) program, and INPACT, the model that underpins the commercial successes of such countries as Israel, Ireland, and India.
Dan has a BSc (Biology) from the University of Toronto and an MBA (Marketing) from York University/Schulich School of Business.
