Hi! I’m Daniel Burns, a marketing and content professional living in Boulder, CO. Besides my love for film, travel and photography, I appreciate a good bouldering problem that takes weeks to solve. I prefer whiskey over beer. And I believe without music, life would be a mistake.
In my day job, I help businesses tell their stories through content and automate the marketing of that content to generate new business. Outside of work, I’m a family man helping to raise two awesome kids with my beautiful wife Shaunna. When the mood strikes, we can be found exploring the mountains and deserts of the West, rolling along in our campervan, looking for new places to play, learn, and explore.
I want to inspire inventive creativity, thoughtful execution, mindful work and insatiable curiosity. My mission is to tell stories and share ideas that help people make their mark. Grab a drink and lets get to know each other.
I’VE WORKED WITH:
Warren Miller Films
Time Warner Cable
2008 Telly Awards
2006 Telly Awards
2006 Promax Awards
2003 SXSW Web AWARD
AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Loyalty, creativity, ambition, innovation, work/life balance, and fun.
Jeans, sneakers, button down shirt. When meeting clients, I put on nicer shoes.
I’ll have an Old-Fashioned, thanks.
WHAT PLACES HAVE YOU CALLED HOME?
Philadelphia, Boulder, and West Texas.
PHILLY HUH? SO, PAT’S OR GENO’S?
Oh god, neither. Those places are for tourists. Go to Tony Luke’s.
WHAT DO YOU CARRY WITH YOU ALWAYS?
My phone, which is my camera, and my connection to the world. I can leave the wallet behind, but I need my phone.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR PRODUCERS JUST STARTING OUT?
Learn to do everything someone in your position interacts with (coding, videography, editing, etc.). Even if you aren’t great at everything, the experience will help with every decision you make.
FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN BOULDER:
My favorite thing about Boulder is the close proximity to the mountains. In just minutes from your door, you can be on a 1,000+ foot rock climb, or an amazing hike.
FAVORITE PLACES IN THE WORLD:
Telluride, CO and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I have an amazing accuracy sniping houseflies with rubber bands. (I’m available for hire.)
Chocolate ice cream
