ONE MINUTE WITH DANNY:
WUMCRC: “What are some advantages to working in FPSE?”
Danny: “The people are great in both the organization, [WUMCRC], and the community. It’s an exciting place to get to work in community development in St. Louis.
WUMCRC: “What do you enjoy most about living in St. Louis?”
Danny: “There are a lot of people here that are genuinely interested in building a better St. Louis, and it’s important to me to get to be a part of a community like that. There is more opportunity to make an impact in St. Louis- opportunity that you don’t have in many other cities.”
WUMCRC: “If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?”
Danny: “I’d like the ability to go back in time, to be like the great Biff Tannen in Back to the Future.”
