Daniel Donahoo engages across a diverse range of spaces, with different organisations and communities, using a broad suite of skills and tools.
Daniel’s core interest is in the third sector: with education, communities, social enterprise, health and disability. Increasingly, that work often relates to the point where people and organisations intersect with technology. This is a point where there is current and ongoing tension. Consequently, it is a space where discussion and work around change, evolution and improvement are had. Daniel has a depth of experience and values having these conversations.
Daniel recognises that change is hard. He values those who create and make things and is continually striving to be a contributor in his own life. He understands the importance of respectful and transparent relationships in all aspects of life.
Daniel’s favourite film continues to be The Princess Bride. When pushed, he tends towards the romantic.
Contributing Editor at New Media Consortium
The New Media Consortium have given me a role as a contributing editor for 2014.

Looking back at Radio Days
In the work I do, occasionally I get the chance to tell stories and answer questions on radio. Here are a few worth sharing.

Young Parents – Life Matters – ABC Radio National - 23 Aug 2006
LEGO Poetry – Aural Text – 3RRR – 1 Jun 2011
Daniel works with words. Molding, shaping and pounding away at them is his trade. He has been known to wield them in anger, in romance, in hope and in vain.
Written. Spoken. Recorded. Edited. Published. Short and long.
In stories. In books. In articles. In tenders. In proposals. In policies and procedures. In poetry. In stories. In ideas.
You will find Daniel’s most recent writings in the news section of the site.
