Current Classes

Dan is currently teaching classes for Studio One Art Center in Oakland, CA. Many class projects are available to see here.

Video Game Creation

Dan has been teaching youth from 8-12 how to make video games since 2010, using a variety of softwares, including Scratch, Stencyl, Multimedia Fusion 2, and Khan Academy. Many of his students' games can be seen online here.


Dan has been teaching people of all ages the art of getting on stage and spontaneously producing entertainment since 2004, and has been practicing improv himself since 1998, including performing professionally with ComedySportz San Jose.
