UTC Leadership | Social Media:




Growing up, Danny always thought he would become a lawyer because he would consistently argue with someone until they admitted that they were wrong. Even though he excelled in studies related to Criminal Justice and Pre-Law in college, Danny realized that he wanted a career and not a job. His career in higher education and vast volunteer experiences have allowed him to visit many campuses and restaurants across the country. Born and raised in NYC, Danny traded in life on the subways, real bagels, and the soothing noise of planes, trains, and automobiles when he moved down south to work at UTC in December 2014. What Danny did bring down with him thru his experiences is different perspectives and the mentality of the “skies the limit.” He hopes that his actions and words inspire others to “question the knowledge ” and to be in confident in their skills, the true purpose of college.

Danny earned a M.Ed, in College Student Personnel from Ohio University in June 2009 and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Quinnipiac University in May 2007. He lives in Hixson with his wife Amanda and their Pomeranian Mr. Sonic. All three love going on hikes, watching great movies, and exploring new places and experiences.
