"I met Daniel almost one year ago and he has been an inspiration from day one. It’s rare to find talented hard workers nowadays and thats what you get with Dan. Not only does he put paper to pen but he’s a top notch individual.His personality is one that will show off extremely positively from the first meet, Dan is extremely passionate about empowerment and education and believes strongly in making a difference. It’s always humbling to know there’s someone working harder than you and hustling more than yourself.

Chances are you know someone who knows Dan, and higher chances are that you can actually learn a few things from this young guy that runs one of the most famous growth hacking groups in the world.I choose the people I work with very carefully, both in terms of passion, etiquette and hustle, he has all three and I would strongly recommend getting in touch with him or working with him to have anything to do with design, product management, people relationships, and of course his main arsenal, marketing.

A relationship-builder and connector, Dan definitely gets around in the tech scene. Chances are you know him, or your closest contact do. An inspiration, a great friend, and a downright gentleman."

"Dan is an absolutely incredible networker, marketer and partnerships manager. I had the privilege of knowing Dan since university while he was simultaneously the Co-Founder and Head of Partnerships & Growth at Coder Factory Academy.

Dan’s ability to network, his technical skills in all forms of marketing (social media, SEO, SEM, influencer, inbound / outbound, paid, etc) and his interest in design and engineering make him a truly effective resource. We have a joke in the Sydney startup community that “all roads lead to Dan”, since he seems to know everyone.

Dan’s advice and introductions are always invaluable and I hope to have the pleasure of working with him directly one day."
