Daniel Zinn
COO / Director of Production


Dan is an award-winning filmmaker in his own right and grew up in the suburbs of New York City. He began his work in film alongside Andrew Jenks as the Line Producer for Andrew Jenks, Room 335.

A graduate of Cornell University, Dan went on to work for IBM where he successfully completed their leadership development program.  Following a one-year stint on an international assignment in Beijing, China, Dan came back to the US and spent the next four months traveling the country on the back of a Harley Davidson.  A la "Motorcycle Diaries," Dan captured over 100 hours of footage and set the Guinness World Record for the longest motorcycle journey within a single country.
