Dan Applegate, BS 2009

After a 9-month apprenticeship as an actor at Actor’s Theatre of Louisville in Kentucky, I moved to New York in May of 2010. In January of 2011, I began working as a developer at a New York-based digital agency called Rokkan, where I built highly interactive websites and Facebook applications for clients such as Chipotle, Ford, and Kraft Foods. In June of 2012, I was hired to join the team at Skillshare, an education startup that seeks to empower creatives around the world by giving them a platform to teach others. In November, 2012, I led a team that submitted an entry to the Github Game Off, in which we won an honorable mention for our game Genetic Drift (http://www.genetic-drift.com/). Recently at Skillshare, I was promoted to Lead Infrastructure Engineer, where I am tasked with managing our servers and developing automated tools to help us scale efficiently. I currently reside in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of beautiful Brooklyn.
