Dan presents weekdays 1-4 on ‘Fun Kids’ – the UK’s Children’s Radio Station.
His shows are full of energy, enthusiasm and personality, with an anarchic style and sense of humour that makes them completely unique.
He hosts one of the UK’s biggest kids and family podcasts, ‘Fun Kids Science Weekly’, which is regularly near the top of the iTunes podcast charts, is listened to by thousands of families across the world and won Bronze in the ‘Best Radio’ category at the British Podcast Awards 2019.
Also, he co-wrote ‘Fun Kids Epic Roadshow Adventure’, the radio station’s first interactive live show, which he performed for a full-length Edinburgh Fringe Festival run, and a sold-out performance at the Underbelly’s Southbank Festival.
As an avid football fan, Dan presents ‘Bean With The Shot’, a popular online series taking fans behind the scenes at Wycombe Wanderers – he has also hosted team events and gala dinners for the club.
Dan is an accomplished live event host and presents his own stage at ‘Geronimo Festival’, one of the UK’s biggest family events. He is regularly approached by brands to host toy-launches, has compered ‘Subway’s 5K family fun runs’ and tours schools across the UK presenting game-shows in association with the Police.
In May 2018, ‘Writer’s Routine’, the podcast he created, produces and presents, was awarded Silver in the Best Culture category at the ‘British Podcast Awards’, beating the BBC, commercial broadcasters and many independent production companies. For the show, he has interviewed some of the world’s biggest authors, with writers like Anthony Horowitz, Cecelia Ahern and Ian Rankin chatting about their working day, and the secrets of their success.
Dan graduated with a First-Class BA (Hons) Radio Production Degree, and now produces radio across national and local BBC stations. He’s interested in everything from science to story-telling, from Frozen to football. He badly plays the guitar, erratically juggles and can finish a Rubik’s Cube in under 3 minutes.
