My CSTA Story
Daniel joined CSTA with a deep appreciation for teachers. As a former high school teacher, he understands how hard teachers work every day to grow as educators, become more effective, and reach students who wouldn’t otherwise see themselves in a computer science course. He is motivated by CSTA’s purpose and the values that serve as guideposts for the impact we strive to create through a more equitable, inclusive, and accessible CS teaching landscape.
Daniel leads philanthropic partnership efforts and business development for CSTA, with a focus on building relationships that secure major gifts. He collaborates closely with strategic industry partners who share CSTA’s mission and vision. For over 11 years, he has broadened networks of philanthropic supporters at young and established nonprofits. In 2022, he was recognized for his professional and lay leadership achievements as one of Jewish Chicago’s 36 Under 36.
Originally from Chicago, Daniel is a dog enthusiast who lives for Chicago summers. He enjoys cycling, grilling, gardening, and finding new ways to give back to the community. He loves planning his next travel adventure, whether it’s a short day trip or a longer international journey.
