Dan drives the strategy development and execution of Environment California’s campaigns and lobbying in the California state Capitol. He has successfully advocated for the passage of dozens of bills into law, including measures to ban toxic chemicals, bring 1 million solar roofs to California, and commit the state to divest from coal. He has also spearheaded two winning ballot campaigns, one that defended California’s groundbreaking Global Warming Solutions Act against an oil industry-backed repeal effort, and another to ban single-use plastic bags in grocery stores. Dan was named one of Capitol Weekly’s “Top 100 Lobbyists” in California in 2008. Dan lives in Sacramento, Calif., where he enjoys studying Spanish, playing guitar, hiking through the wilderness and playing in a jug band.
