Bumper-sticker Man from Lord Save Us From Your Followers

Dan was the kid who once showed up to summer camp with typed scripts for talent night and cast his cabin mates in the comedy sketches. Not much has changed since 1976, Dan has been writing, producing, directing and talking people into his ideas ever since. Dan makes his debut as a feature documentary director with Lord, Save Us From Your Followers – the product of an amazing three-year journey behind the front lines of America’s so-called Culture Wars. The film is scheduled for limited theatrical release Summer 2009. Also, Lord, Save Us From Your Followers was awarded the Judges' Award and the People's Award for Best Spiritual Documentary of 2008 by Beliefnet.com. More information can be found at lordsaveusthemovie.

The companion book to Lord, Save Us From Your Followers was released by Thomas Nelson in March 2008.

Dan’s creative brain rarely slows down and he’s currently applying his unique vision to a compelling new documentary, Homeless, Inc, an examination of homelessness and the urban myth of a clandestine industry building up around it.

Previously, Dan kept busy in television, highlights include: Executive Producer/Writer of VH1’s critically acclaimed “Rock and Roll Twilight Zone” anthology series, Strange Frequency, hosted by The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Soccer Moms, a hour drama pilot script for CBS/Warner Bros., and Seattle’s classic regional Emmy winning sketch comedy show Almost Live!

A crazy sports fan, Dan supports an NCAA football “final four” playoff. An avid concert-goer, he insists the Rolling Stones “still have it”, but now concedes U2 carries the title of 'Best Live Band'.

Dan, an expert on the loom, has been happily married for twenty one years and is the father of two teenage boys. Merchant and his family live in the rainy woods near Portland, Oregon
