“Dana's unwavering commitment and passion for teaching is truly extraordinary,” said Michael Coutanche, Chair of the RTA School of Media. “With his innovative and accessible methods, engaging style, and special connection to students, Dana embodies the very best of what we do here in RTA. His impact resonates well beyond the classroom as many of his students have gone on to successful careers and lives thanks to his contagious enthusiasm and energy.”
