InfoDan Seals was born and raised in Chicago. He is a graduate of Boston University, where he majored in journalism. But his first job out of school was as a teacher. He taught English for two years at a public high school in Japan, becoming fluent in the Japanese language along the way. He returned to the United States to attend the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C., where he received a M.A. in International Economics and Japan Studies.

SAIS also nominated Dan for a Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF), a competitive fellowship that allows selected candidates to work with senior leaders in government. He won the PMF, and spent the first half of it working as an Aide to the Assistant Secretary of Export in the Department of Commerce. His job there focused on tracking exports of U.S. technology to foreign markets. The second half of the PMF was spent working for Senator Joseph I. Lieberman. Dan’s mission was to assist in the development of the Senator’s economic agenda in the Senate. Specifically, he worked on tax, budget, economic development, and international trade issues, among others.

Dan returned to Chicago to attend the University of Chicago, where he received an M.B.A. Upon graduation he joined Sprint, where he managed programs responsible for half a billion dollars of revenue annually. He now works for GE Commercial Finance, where he is the Director of Marketing for a real estate lending business.

Dan lives in Wilmette with his wife, Mia, and two daughters. He is a volunteer for the Youth Organization Umbrella (Y.O.U.) of Evanston and for the United Way.
