Marketing & Communications Manager
Daniel grew up in a family of immigrant refugees from the Soviet Union, and has seen the value of entrepreneurship since an early age, his family building their lives from scratch through small businesses in Colorado. He graduated from the University of Denver with a BSBA in International Business and went on to open a small business of his own and manage projects, databases and communication campaigns for international translation firms, international sports media organizations, insurance providers and more. Before joining Alternativ, Daniel spent time traveling around Europe and Northern Africa consulting for international organizations. He’s fluent in Russian and Spanish.
After receiving her B.A. in Urban Studies concentrating in Public Policy and Issues from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, Hannah worked in government, non-profit, and private sectors to hone her operational and process creation skills. She is excited to bring her previous experience managing programs and building organizational capacity to serve global entrepreneurs with Alternativ. She has seen the impact of entrepreneurial training first-hand and is thrilled to be a part of empowering others in a consultant capacity. She enjoys swing dancing, reading, playing the ukulele, and, of course, traveling.
