Sirius) of the book Counterculture Through the Ages: From Abraham to Acid House and has written for magazines including bOING bOING, High Times, Science Fiction Eye, The Brain/Mind Bulletin and Reflex. Dan was also a close friend to the late Timothy Leary and, among his many other accomplishments, conducted and published the most interesting and thoughtful interview with Brian Eno that I have ever read.

When The Sun Hits is thrilled to welcome Dan as our new Assistant Editor. Speaking as the Editor, I can tell you that Dan has already, even in the short time he's been with us, helped to revitalize the blog with a fresh perspective and interesting content. His love for music is immense and his drive to discover more matches our own. He respects and understands the aesthetic Danny and I built WTSH upon, which means very much to me personally and professionally. Dan has already become a great friend; I look forward to working with him in the future as When The Sun Hits continues to grow. Welcome, Dan!
