About the Speaker

Dan Goods

Dan Goods is passionate about creating moments where people are reminded of the gift and privilege of being alive.
During the day he leads an amazing team of creatives at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, transforming complex concepts into meaningful stories that can be universally understood. The team’s work is seen in public spaces, art museums, and is in outer space.

After doing the dishes, reading bedtime stories to his kids, and spending time with his wife, Dan works on other creative problem solving projects around the world. He is currently working with the Museum of the Future in Dubai, and trying to imagine how to simulate the feeling of being in a room singing with a million other people.

Dan was recently honored with NASA’s Exceptional Public Service Award. In the past he was selected as “One of the most interesting people in Los Angeles” by the LA Weekly. In 2002 he graduated valedictorian from the graphic design program at Art Center College of Design.
