Established styles are questioned and every message is a new challenge and requires a new angle.

The VP can be thankful for this prodigy."

"I have worked with Dan for about a year. I know Dan as a strong communicator, who thrives in a dynamic, ever-changing environment. Dan has been an important driver of EU Humanitarian id's digital presence as one the main architects behind a fully rewamped website. His dedicated implementation of the Commission's communication activities in relation to the World Humanitarian Summit demonstrates that he is also a hands-on guy, who makes concrete things happen. Dan is a good networker, who builds and maintains relevant professional relationships. An appetite for new challenges makes him constantly challenge his own comfort zone."
"As part of our preparation of the i24news tri-lingual news portal, Dan did a remarkable job developing an editorial strategy and training the newly-established web-team. His insight on linguistic and cultural sensitivities, SEO, journalistic standards and style, online user experience, and web operations - was highly useful and greatly appreciated!"
"Efficiency, professionalism and creativity is I what kept from my collaboration with Dan. We had the chance to collaborate on an action at the European Commission for VP Maroš Šefčovič to exchange with the "Youth for Climate" group, in a great innovative way inside our vehicle while driving autonomously. This was broadcasted live on-line on Facebook EU and followed by more than 1M follower. It was done in a so short time that only high efficient coordinators can handle, with all the tech, papers, coordination and operational work that you can imagine. Dan orchestrated this with a smile. Happy to collaborate to new challenges with Dan."
