Dan has had the pleasure of serving the Princeton University community since 2004, and in his current role at the Lewis Center since 2006. As the Assistant Director of Finance & Administration, Dan oversees the financial and business operations for the Lewis Center for the Arts and its programs in Creative Writing, Dance, Music Theater, Theater, Visual Arts, Princeton Atelier and Arts Fellowships. Dan’s position serves as the source for the Lewis Center’s budgets, business and financial transactions, interdepartmental funding, procurement, independent contracts, hiring, payroll, University and departmental policies and procedures, compliance, and various academic and administrative matters.

During his time at the Lewis Center, Dan thoroughly enjoys working with the talented and dedicated students, faculty, staff and guest artists who produce all of the Lewis Center’s wonderful performances, exhibitions, stage productions, and guest lecture and reading series. Being part of the growth and expansion of the arts on campus, from a smaller-scale operation at 185 Nassau Street to new and renovated state-of-the-art facilities spanning the campus is especially rewarding.

Prior to joining the Lewis Center, Dan served as a Research Group Grants & Operations Manager in the Department of Electrical Engineering and PRISM. There he oversaw the business operations and grants for a prominent research group, was an editorial assistant for a scientific journal, and managed the large-scale relocation of the research group’s laboratories and grants to the University of Michigan.

Dan holds a B.S. in Graphic Communications Business Management and his career of managing the business and financial operations for various organizations spans over 20 years. In his time away from the Lewis Arts Complex he enjoys photography, music, the visual and performing arts, nature, running, relaxing on the beach, coaching youth baseball and traveling with his family.
