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 and consulting positions with several outdoors companies, multi-channel media groups, and organizations providing strategic solutions for social media, digital 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 spurred a passion for the organization and its mission. Since 2011, Daniel has held the volunteer roles of Program Lead and Deputy Regional Coordinator and continues volunteering with the Syracuse, NY Program.
Daniel resides in Cazenovia, NY, with his wife Mary Kate, son Benjamin, and their dog Daisy. He is a member of Facebook’s U.S. Small Business Council, Madison County Trout Unlimited, a Founding Member of the Facebook Leaders Network, global ambassador for Facebook Blueprint 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, Facebook Blueprint, Guidestar, Network for Good, and Military Families Magazine among others. He has lectured for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Guidestar, Network for Good, the American Fly Fishing Trade Association, the International Fly Tackle Dealers, Cornell University, the North American Association on Environmental Education, and the World Forum on Shooting Activities in-addition to serving as an expert panelist at Facebook Small Business forums and the Global Communities Summit.
