"The world’s a pretty big place, but it’s a lot smaller when you get out and meet people."
Hello, my name is Dan Burdick. I am a 23-year-old, Boston and New England sports fan from North Attleboro, MA.
I graduated from Quinnipiac University in May of 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and a minor in Political Science. In 2016, I officially achieved a Masters degree following a course of study in the Social Media tract of the Interactive Communications Masters program at Quinnipiac.
During my senior year of college I interned for a local Advertising Agency in New Haven, CT. Following that experience, I aspired to start my own digital marketing agency with the help of my friend John Mantz.

"The selective approach provides the essential conditions for creative freedom."
Hello, my name is John Mantz. By title, you could refer to me as an interactive designer, graphic artist, or any other name that has become nearly synonymous since the dawn of the Digital Age.
A self-described Multimedia Renaissance Man, I like to allow my work ethic and creativity define my professional standpoint. In other words, I consider myself to be more than just a right-brain behind a computer screen.
More importantly, I am a creative innovator, an out-of-the-box thinker, and above all, a very dedicated worker. To put it in the most basic terms, I am just another hobbyist trying to master my craft.
