For the spring semester, Meridian Hill Pictures is excited to bring three talented interns to our team to work on a variety of production, post-production, development and outreach projects.
Dan is a native of Illinois with a background in community journalism. After working as a newspaper reporter in Colorado he traveled with the Peace Corps to West Africa where he worked with small pastoralist communities on grassroots agriculture projects. He then went on to Uganda where he got involved with rights groups interested in forced migration, justice and conflict resolution. There he produced print and video reports for news and advocacy campaigns as well as two independent documentaries, “Getting Out” and “Gender Against Men.”
Dan is new to DC and is excited to be learning about a new city. He enjoys gardening, basketball, and has been to the Air & Space Museum more times than he should probably admit.
