Daniel Kwan

I am a multi-media educational professional and anthropologist driven to create meaningful and engaging educational experiences for individuals at all stages of the learning process.  

I possess extensive experience in the development and execution of alternative educational programming using tabletop gaming. Since 2011, I've been running the Royal Ontario Museum's highly successful Dungeons & Dragons program and consulted in the development of a program using the Dungeon World system at the Aga Khan Museum between 2015 and 2016. I am one of the Co-Founders of Level Up Gaming, a Toronto-based organization that provides individuals on the autism spectrum and with other disabilities the opportunity to develop and explore their real-world social skills through goal-directed group gaming experiences. I am also one of the Lead Designers and Co-Founders of Dundas West Games (DWG), a modest game design business with single objective: create entertaining and educational tabletop games. Using over two decades of combined experience using tabletop gaming in museum classrooms, DWG hopes to offer accessible and engaging educational experiences for gamers curious about the world! 

I am also well-versed in the development and execution of alternative educational programming, research grant writing, and project management. I am also experienced in the creative development, production, and post-production of podcasts and other web-syndicated episodic content. Outside of the classroom, I host Curiosity in Focus, a bi-weekly podcast that explores the nature of curiosity through casual conversations with young professionals and influencers from around the world. Since November 2016, I have interviewed over 50 guests of diverse backgrounds spanning from restaurateurs to medical professionals. The series has garnered over 50,000 total downloads since its start in 2016.
