Experience

Daniel Kurland is a freelance writer, comedian, and critic, who lives in the cultural mosaic that is Brooklyn, New York. Daniel’s work can be read on ScreenRant, Splitsider, Bloody Disgusting, Den of Geek, and across the Internet. He recently completed work on a noir anthology graphic novel titled, "Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Noir: A Rag of Bizarre Noir and Hard Boiled Tales" and he’s currently toiling away on his first novel. Daniel knows that "Psycho II" is better than the original, that the finale of "How I Met Your Mother" doesn’t deserve the hate that it receives, and that Garth Ennis’ run of "Animal Man" may be the best superhero story of all time. The owls are not what they seem.

Education

Daniel has acquired an intimate understanding of television and film with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Television Production, with a Minor in English from Ryerson University. The television production experience has allowed Daniel to work on certain television series before ultimately shifting to a critical perspective and writing about these productions rather than for them. Daniel's thorough understanding of the industry as well as genre has left him very prepared to critically approach these areas of entertainment.
