My name is Daniel Tasman. I was raised in a Jewish and Christian interfaith home. Brooklyn born and spent most of my life in Grand Rapids and Chicago before moving back to New York in 2013. I'm a father, a husband, and an ENTJ

Vocationally, I am a trained graphic designer and have been known for my entrepreneurship. I went to school for graphic design and philosophy with a minor in entrepreneurship. Turns out that it's the perfect storm to drop out of school and start your own businesses. Eventually, I made it back to school to finish my B.S. in Leadership and Nonprofit Administration. It only took me eight years.

My daughter is my joy. She can also be a lot of work but I think she's worth it. She likes to sleep when we're on the way to do fun things. She also does not like to sleep when it's bedtime. Oh––and she likes to swim and get her nails did.

When I'm not being told what to do by my bossy kid, I get told what to do by the love of my life. First world problems, man. But in all seriousness, my wife is my best friend and more than I could have ever asked for. She's also a fantastic mother.

I listed some of my interests below but it's a work in progress.
