About

I’m Dan. Just a loveable word guy with a can-do attitude, his own dot com, and a semi-shevelled head of hair.

I am currently a creative at the Royals, an agency in Melbourne, making ads, content and brand platforms for companies like Mercedes-Benz Vans, NAB, Melbourne Racing Club, Australian Super, Pennytel and the Australian Communities Foundation.

Before that, I was a radio and TV host, living the media life and hosting shows all over Australia (and for a week in Dubai) for broadcasters like Southern Cross Austereo, Network Ten, Nova Entertainment and Channel [V]. Performing at fringe and comedy festivals, interviewing movie stars, and going backstage at stadium shows, from One Direction to Metallica. Not a bad way to spend your twenties.

I’ve spent the last few years hosting my own podcast, Totally Obsessed, which Apple crowned one of the top podcasts of 2018, and writing a musical, which debuted in 2019 at the Perth Fringe World festival to a sell out run, with the return season in 2020 selling out too. In 2019 I completed AWARD School and transitioned straight into agency life. I love it because I love ideas, smart people, and working hard to make things happen.

I like it when people end their bios with interesting facts about themselves and I am also the owner of two Lego pirate ships.
