Dan is a co-founder of bloom six, a social enterprise that recruits, places, and trains talented learning mentors in alternative provision schools, to enable students to flourish.
Dan was a 2018 Fellow. For his frontline phase, Dan was placed at New River College, a pupil referral unit in Camden. His consultancy project was for the London Legacy Development Corporation, helping them develop a youth engagement strategy.
He is a designer curious about the contradictions, ambiguities and stereotypes that surround complex social problems. He graduated in 2008 with a degree in graphic design. In 2016 he returned to study in Sweden at Umeå Institute of Design where he developed an interest in service design and human centred design methodologies. This led him to the field of speculative design, design to provoke thoughtfulness and alternative ideas. He is intrigued by counterargument and challenging the status quo.
