Daniel DiGriz is a serial entrepreneur, founder, and investor in other businesses and asset growth opportunities. He serves as a trusted advisor to various commercial enterprises, taking on ill-defined problems in multiple spheres and providing leadership in collaboration with a community of free agents. He has been called a community organizer for business, commercial evangelist, corporate storyteller, and enterprise minister of propaganda.
In professional communities, he prioritizes learning and professional development and is particularly interested in narratives that connect others with their goals and objectives. With a bottom line and often hands-on approach, he may plug-in across growth, brand, product, and data—aligning messaging, marketing, and media with a missionary zeal for sustainable outcomes.
In public persona, he writes for various publications, speaks at conferences, and host podcasts. Privately, he keeps company with a select few friends and business associates, usually in the presence of whiskey and jazz. He works out every day, reads constantly, ponders deeply, and talks straight. Someone asked him if his little five-pound rescue dog could protect him as well as a big pit bull. He answered, "He's not my protector; I'm his."
Daniel's ethos revolves around duty: "Do what you say when you say."
Having grown up in the swath of central United States from Minnesota to Louisiana—the land of the Mississippi River and all those rivers that pay it inevitable tribute, he spent some years living in the Pacific Rim beginning with the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. Returning with the Millennium, he found he had no taste left for the desiccated grasslands of the Great Plains. After a septennium of scouting and planning, he settled in New York City in 2013 and currently lives in the borough of Brooklyn, in the tree-filled neighborhood where Walt Whitman edited the Brooklyn Daily Eagle while writing Leaves of Grass.
