Daniel is the Communications Director for Just Vision, a nonprofit that highlights the power and reach of Palestinians and Israelis working to end the occupation and build a future of freedom, dignity and equality.
Daniel leads Just Vision's press outreach and social media along with developing educational and impact materials for their films, programming and Hebrew-language news site, Local Call. An intern with Just Vision in 2005, Daniel quickly became immersed in the language, politics and culture of the region, working and studying in the occupied Palestinian territories from 2006-2008 and 2012-2013, first to study Arabic and later to conduct fieldwork for his dissertation. His academic research traces the evolution of the normalization and anti-normalization discourse in Palestinian society since 1967. He was a 2013-2014 Peace Scholar at the US Institute of Peace, an award-winning graduate student teacher at McGill University and George Washington University and was a 2010 recipient of the Kathryn Davis Fellow for Peace at Middlebury College.
Daniel holds a BA (Hons) in Political Science and Middle East Studies, an MA in Political Science from McGill University and a PhD in Political Science from George Washington University. He is an occasional contributor to the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage and lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
