Dan has worked in the creative industries for nearly 40 years, since joining the Architectural Association in central London as AV technician straight from school in 1981. In the intervening years he has balanced work in the technology world with his passion for music. Dan has toured and recorded with multiple well-known acts over the years playing trombone, alongside his AV work for events, integrators and in media production.
Having installed AV displays in many of the major art galleries around the globe, such as MOMA in New York and Beaubourg (Centre Pompidou) in Paris, he has for the last 13 years been busy as Audio Visual Service Manager for the Tate. Running teams at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, he has responsibilities across the family of Tate galleries to help support his colleagues’ use of sound, image, lighting, stage and set for exhibitions, performances and events of all kinds imaginable.
