GUERRILLA GEOGRAPHER / NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EMERGING EXPLORER
Founder of The Geography Collective and Director of Explorer HQ, his work is focused on challenging people to explore and think about the world in new ways. In the process he is hoping for nothing less than a revolution in how we think about and through geography.
In one of his projects Daniel walks across entire cities to change how we see them. Daniel describes the explorations as conversations with the city in which he develops a sense of the local while reflecting on its relationships with the distant and global. His films and photography have been seen in schools, Dance East at Glastonbury Festival and are featured in the Harvard GSD book, Ecological Urbanism.
Daniel believes that we are all explorers, constantly asking questions and searching for answers. Daniel has been the driving force behind Mission:Explore, a global project that helps hundreds of thousands of children explore, play and learn in their local areas.
