A life-long fly fisherman and sporting enthusiast, Daniel Morgan was born and raised in Stamford, CT. His love for the outdoors originate from the time spent with his grandfather exploring the woods and streams of upstate NY each summer during his youth. He attended college at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY and following graduation, Daniel pursued his passion for the outdoors professionally. Starting off as a guide and instructor, he has since held corporate, advisory, and consulting positions with several outdoors companies, multi-channel media groups, and organizations providing strategic solutions for social media, marketing and communications.
Inspired by his grandfather, a U.S. Army Veteran who served in the Battle of the Bulge, Daniel began volunteering with the Syracuse Program of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) in 2011. Through his volunteerism, he immediately saw the tremendous impact the PHWFF program was having on veterans in his community. This spurned a passion for the organization and its mission. Since 2011, Daniel has held the volunteer roles of Program Lead, Deputy Regional Coordinator, and was an early member of the CEO Field Advisory Council. He currently serves as the Chief Marketing and Strategic Communications Officer for PHWFF and continues volunteering with the Syracuse, NY Program.
Daniel resides in Cazenovia, NY, with his wife Mary Kate and their dog Daisy. He is a member of Facebook’s Small/Medium Business Council, Madison County Trout Unlimited, and has sat on the Board of Directors of the Cazenovia Lake Association. His work has been featured in USA Today, Fox News, Facebook for Business, Network for Good, and the San Francisco Chronicle among others. He has lectured for Cornell University, the North American Association on Environmental Education, the Department of Veterans Affairs, The World Forum on Shooting Activities and has served as an expert panelist at Facebook Small Business forums. When not at work, you can find him prowling his nearby woods and trout streams with fly-rod in hand.
