About Dan Gurin

Dan joined CivicActions as an engineer in 2015, serving as front and backend developer with a passion for open source software. He is a Drupal generalist since 2008 and agile evangelist who is driven to make things work more efficiently.

With more than a decade of media production experience, primarily in the media and higher education verticals, Dan brings a knack for persistence and collaboration that makes him a valuable team player in the creation of compelling sites for clients. His love for learning new technologies keeps him on the watch for tools that make things work better.

Before joining CivicActions, Dan served as product owner for National Public Radio’s Core Publisher Drupal multisite. This facilitates member stations’ ability to share digital content throughout the network the same way they share audio content. Dan was also instrumental in building a Site Factory for Harvard Medical School (HMS) departments and laboratories, simplifying maintenance and enhancement production. He pioneered the adoption of Agile processes for his team at HMS, still used there as an indispensable tool for successful projects.

Dan holds a BA in classical guitar from John Hopkins University and enjoys playing a multidimensional array of plucked string and percussion instruments. Outside of work, Dan is a proponent of environmental sustainability and enthusiastic cyclist, swimmer, and cross-country skier — depending on the weather. He also enjoys local food with his family in the mountains of North Carolina.

CivicActions at DrupalCamp Asheville: It’s All About Balance

The principle of balance has been at the heart of CivicActions culture since its inception -- so we’re proud to serve as sponsors for DCAVL this year, helping bring this valuable event to the Asheville community where 10% of the workforce is remote.
