Danny Harris is the founder and creator of People's District, a website that shares the stories of Washington, D.C.'s residents, and StorySocial, a creative design firm that helps tell better stories and create stronger communities. Danny is also the co-founder of Feastly, a startup that connects diners with chefs by offering unique food experiences, and is currently working as the Program Director for the Knight Foundation in San Jose, CA. Danny worked in the policy world before venturing out as an entrepreneur and storyteller. His intention was not to make a career change when he created People's District, but instead was looking for a way that he could personally connect with the people in his city and have a better understanding of his community. We discuss the personal transformation that launched this new life venture, the work of taking an idea to action and the importance in connection with those in your community who might not be just like you.
