Professor Elizabeth Bradley


Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY


Daniel is particularly gifted at convening dialogue about controversial and important topics about nationalism, military strategy, politics, and leadership.  With his experience in multiple sectors—government, nonprofit, and military—Daniel has a wealth of insight he shares easily.  Our time with Daniel was truly one of "engaged pluralism" where diverse voices spoke and were heard, and we all learned. I highly recommend him as a speaker, convener, and inspiration for students of all ages.
