Danny's job is to decentralize the web using pocket-sized private servers running free and open source software. As Vice President for Product and Development at the FreedomBox Foundation, he prepares FreedomBox to be put in the hands and places that need it. To that end, he collaborates with software developers to meet user needs, pursues partnerships to bring FreedomBox to market, and engages communities that need FreedomBox. In his work, he draws on wide-ranging professional experiences, which include IT for a public school district, communications for a congressional campaign, constituent services for a U.S. congressional district office, and social services at homeless and refugee shelters. Danny earned his B.A. in philosophy, political science, and linguistics from Columbia University. He wants to use FreedomBox to create and protect freedom in the 21st century.
