Dan Goods is passionate about creating moments in people’s lives where they are reminded of the gift and privilege of being alive.

Why you should listen

During the day, Dan Goods leads an extraordinary team of creatives called The Studio at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory where they transform complex concepts into meaningful stories that can be universally understood. Their work is seen in public spaces, art museums, and is in outer space.
After doing the dishes, hanging out with his kids and spending time with my wife, he collaborates on art installations, immersive experiences and creative problem-solving projects around the world. 
He was recently honored with NASA’s Exceptional Public Service Award. In the past, he was awarded an International Design Excellence Award for the eCLOUD sculpture at the San Jose Airport. In 2002, he graduated from the graphic design program at Art Center College of Design. He currently lives in Altadena, CA with his wife, three kids, 6 chickens, 2 bee hives and our beautiful dog.
