Dan is the author of The Nonprofit Narrative: How Stories Can Save the World. He loves helping passionate people strive for the impossible and on several occasions he’s seen it happen.
For over a decade, Dan has worked with the toughest outposts of Fortune 500 companies to get them back on track and with big results. He is sought after to help flesh out business ideas, coach teams and lead senior staff through the digital age.
In 2006, he started The Portnoy Media Group to help nonprofits, companies and organizations better tell their stories for impact and engagement. His communication strategies have helped multiple nonprofit organizations double their online donations year over year and raise millions. Dan’s cultivation of story ideas builds community, engages the free radicals and removes the barriers between traditional cultivation and acquisition.
He’s been a producer and a director for multiple projects, including The Great American Road Trip, a five part miniseries documentary/reality show. He is the founder, editor-in-chief and host of The Drop, a music podcast that features interviews with artists and bands on the rise.
Dan lives in Pasadena, CA and loves it.
