Born in New Hartley, Northumberland, Dan is a former student at Northumbria University. His undergraduate study of Newcastle’s ‘Garibaldi riots of 1866’ won both the Freemen of the City of Newcastle Prize for Historical Writing and the Sid Chaplin Prize, and his Ph.D. thesis became the basis for Popular Opposition to Irish Home Rule in Edwardian Britain (2009) which has received several positive reviews in the Journal of British Studies, the Historical Journal and the Economic History Review. Dan also contributed a paper on the martial culture of the North East of England to the bicentenary celebrations of the birth of Lord Armstrong in 2010.
After leaving academia, Dan joined local government, where he is now Strategic Commissioning Lead at South Tyneside Council. His study of children’s trust legislation earned him the Outstanding Achievement and Dissertation Prizes at Warwick Business School in 2009.
