Danny's Bio

Hello, my friends!

One thing you should know about me: I make friends very quickly. That is also why I love being an admissions counselor—I get to meet and interact with remarkable students almost every day. If you have any questions about Illinois, the college search process, or future career plans, I’m your guy!

I am originally from New Jersey, but I grew up and graduated high school in the north suburbs of Chicago. I played backyard sports all my life—mostly baseball, basketball, and soccer. In fact, I am still involved in a soccer league here in Urbana. In addition to being a sports prodigy (that’s a joke; I’m actually pretty bad at most sports), I consider myself an American traveler and avid Netflix supporter. My favorite TV show by far is The Office, but I’m a big Friends fan also.

I joined the University of Illinois in May of 2016, and I am always learning new things about the school and community. If you would like to meet me in person, please do not hesitate to stop by our office or check out my admissions videos (called The April and Danny Show).
