Professional Information

Dan came to Colby in 2002 as a Network Specialist and in 2011 took on the role of Director of Information Security, a position tasked with the continuous effort to secure Colby's networks and computer systems and the data they contain. This work involves working with various groups within Information Technology Services as well as many of the departments across campus. Prior to coming to Colby, Dan worked for a large North American Tier-1 Internet company as a network engineer. He's previously worked in IT departments at the University of Colorado and George Mason University.

In 2006 Dan developed and taught a Computer Networks and Security course in the Colby Computer Science department. He continues to teach the course in alternating semesters and offers independent study to computer science students pursuing research in the field of computer, network and information security.

Dan is an advocate for technology as well as information privacy, and believes that it is possible for the two to coexist.
