Hi, I’m Dan.
I’m a father, husband, Mets fan, and officially, a lawyer. I’m a proud graduate of Tufts University and the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. I’m the Director of New Media Communications for Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organization which brings Sesame Street to the world (and, of specific importance to me, Twitter and Facebook). As a fringe benefit, I get to work with Cookie Monster and Grover and Elmo etc. It’s awesome.
I write a daily email called “Now I Know,” which you can sign up for by clicking that link. Every morning, I share something interesting I’ve learned over the last few weeks. It began in June of 2010. As of January 1, 2012, 35,000 people are subscribed. I don’t update this page often, and the up-to-the-minute accurate count is over at the right. You should try it, you’ll like it.
Before all this, I co-founded ArmchairGM, which I co-sold to Wikia. And before that, I was a practicing attorney at EpsteinBeckerGreen, which coincidentally has another attorney in the same office named Dan Lewis. (He is not me.) All of this, and more, can be found on my LinkedIn profile.
I’m on Twitter as @DanDotLewis. My most recent tweets are on the right. I usually talk about the Mets (and sports generally), trivia, the New York startup ecosystem, and of course, Sesame Street. It’s a bit of hodgepodge. And I‘m also active at Amazin’ Avenue, an excellent Mets blog/community as well, and write a lot about the Mets there. Like the two times I won the Designated Driver of the Game. (See?)
Want to share something with me? The best way to reach me is by email — firstname.lastname@example.org. I typically respond to everything, but things fall through the proverbial cracks, so if you email me for some reason and I don’t, just follow up with me.
Oh, and all the stuff here is my personal opinion, not necessarily that of my employer (or anyone else, for that matter, but you’re welcome to agree with me). Standard disclaimer, you know the drill.
Thanks for stopping by.
