STAGE + EVENT DESIGN
In 2013, Dan completed a re-staging of the San Francisco Symphony's critically acclaimed production of The John Cage Songbooks for New World Symphony in Miami. The SF production toured the country and made its final appearance at Carnegie Hall. His other designs for the Symphony include the set for John Adam’s El Nino and the 2003 stage design for the Symphony’s The Flying Dutchman, which garnered “top ten” honors from both the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Times.

Since 2003, Dan has also worked as a Television Consultant for all the IOC sanctioned games of the Olympic Council of Asia.

HBs he’s worked with, include: ESPN/Star Sports, KBS/MBC, CCTV, KPA, GAB, IGBS, DAGBS and VTV.
Little known fact:
In numbers of Sports, Athletes and Competition Venues, the Asian Games is actually larger in scale than the Olympics.

The NBC weekly NBA Inside Stuff earned him another Emmy Award nomination for production design in 1998. The infamous, and much parodied, music video Baby Got Back earned Dan an Mtv Art Direction Award nomination in 1992.
