Daniel studied Latin and Greek at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC before majoring in Classics at the University of Virginia. After graduating with his B.A. in 2008, he entered the Ph.D. program in Classics at Johns Hopkins University. In addition to teaching Latin and Greek at JHU (2010-2014) and at a preparatory school in Towson, MD (Loyola Blakefield, 2013), he lectured on Greek mythology and literature at the University of Maryland - Baltimore County (2013-2014). He moved to New York City in 2015 and has taught most recently in the intensive Summer Latin Institute at the City University of New York (2016). Since 2009 he has attended several spoken Latin programs organized by SALVI and its affiliates.

noteworthy accomplishments icon Noteworthy Accomplishments

At the University of Virginia I was an Echols Scholar and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society. I was also awarded a travel grant from my department to study classical culture in southern France. At Johns Hopkins University I earned the Hodson Fellowship for outstanding work as a first-year student and happily served as a member of the Philological Society, the Graduate Representative Organization, and my department's Graduate Student Association. Through these positions I helped organize guest lectures and a major conference on memory in Antiquity. I honed my teaching skills while developing original curricula for all the courses I taught, ranging from elementary Latin to Homeric Greek. I have presented a number of research papers, most notably at the annual conferences of the Society for Classical Studies and the Archaeological Institute of America.

open quotation

Daniel has a high fluency in the classics and brings a deeper and richer meaning to the text. He has been highly enjoyable in providing a greater understanding to the Ancient Greek and Latin languages both philologically and historically. I’ve been greatly pleased with the challenge and rigor Daniel has provided in class.
