Dan joined PIX11 News in September 2011 and is thrilled to be reporting in the No. 1 market, and the area he was born and raised in, New York City. Since joining the team, Dan has covered some of the area’s biggest stories, including Hurricane Sandy, the East Harlem explosion, the Philadelphia train derailment, and many more.

He has since won awards for his exclusive Hidden New York Series, his coverage of Hurricane Sandy, and for his exclusive reporting on “fight church,” where MMA-style boxing took place inside a house of worship.

Before Dan joined PIX11 News, he worked at NY1 News and Verizon FiOs 1 News on Long Island and in New Jersey.
