Daniel Farber Huang            

Cybersecurity Advisor, CEO of EchoStream Group, Journalist & Documentary Photographer

Daniel Farber Huang attributes much of his leadership success and accomplishments to the lessons learned as a global explorer and humanitarian advocate. Having traveled to nearly 40 countries – often as Expedition Team Leader – Huang understands firsthand how to navigate and thrive in rapidly shifting landscapes and uncertain environments. In the field, Huang is exceptionally talented in mobilizing scarce resources and negotiating cooperation from disparate stakeholders (ranging from military authorities to law enforcement to NGOs to tribal leaders to local boots-on-the-ground) to achieve mission objectives. A former investment banker by training, Huang has been invited by Fortune 50 companies, leading universities, nonprofits, and historical institutions to share his first-hand insights into navigating rapidly shifting landscapes, embracing innovation and improvisation, and accomplishing outsized mission objectives.

His documentary photography is heavily focused on the Global Refugee Crisis, having documented the on-the-ground situations in refugee camps across Greece as well as in Turkey, Bangladesh, Mexico, and the Poland/Ukraine border. Huang is a co-founder of “The Power of Faces,” a global portrait project that seeks to show displaced people and refugees with their inherent courage, beauty, dignity, and grace. His photographs and reportage have been exhibited at Amnesty International, Middle East Institute, numerous museums, galleries, universities, in multiple TED Talks, and traveling exhibitions across the U.S.

Huang has successfully collaborated with his wife and documentary photo partner, Theresa Menders, on women’s and children’s issues and the alleviation of poverty around the globe. He has covered these and other important topics in the Republic of Vanuatu, Haiti, Colombia, Honduras, India, China, Bhutan, and numerous other countries.

Huang’s documentary photography is included in the permanent collections of numerous fine art museums and historic institutions, including the International Center of Photography, the New York Historical Society, the Museum of the City of New York, Museum of Chinese in America, the New York City Fire Museum, the Smithsonian, and other major cultural institutions.

Huang earned a Masters degree in Journalism and certificate in International Security from Harvard University, an MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and a BA in Economics from New York University. He is an Advisor to Princeton University’s startup incubator, The Keller Center, where he mentors entrepreneurial founders on growing and scaling companies. He is also author of books and articles on humanitarian advocacy, cybersecurity, and individual privacy.
