While in Burma/Myanmar since 2008, Daniel worked closely with ex-political prisoners, human rights activists, and journalism students. Currently, Daniel is completing a collection of stories about those times called, The Cultural Impact Studied Club: Real stories of courage and hope during Burma’s days of despair. He was an English Language Fellow for two years at the American Center school where he learned that frankness and honesty was a direct affront the passive-aggressive nature of incompetent management. His stoical sense of humor and mild manners were appreciated only by his fellow New Englanders (and a crazy Brit in Mandalay named Jake), who drank heavily, swore a lot, argued with anyone just to disagree, got into fights, and went to church on Sunday’s.
