Born and raised in New York City, Brother Daniel began his career at the College in 1999 teaching several writing classes as an adjunct faculty professor. In 2004, he was hired by Dr. Rob Jacklosky, Chair of the English department, as a visiting instructor. He became an associate professor in 2007 and was named Acting Vice-President of Academic Affairs/Dean of Faculty in early 2008. He has taught courses such as Writing for College, Advanced Writing and Professional Writing. He has taught Introduction to Literature, World Literature and World Writers. According to Dr. Jacklosky, “Most VP’s stop teaching altogether. Br. Dan is unique in that he still teaches an 8:30 a.m. freshman composition course. He introduced and developed the Gothic Literature and Fantasy Literature courses. He teaches the meat and potatoes classes as well as the exotic ones.”
Br. Daniel holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Iona College, a Master’s in English from the State University College of Brockport and a Doctorate degree in Rhetoric and Composition from the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.
