Dan Buck

Dan Buck has worked with hundreds of speakers — from governors, U.S. Senators and Representatives to presidential nominees. He has assisted Michael Sheehan in preparing prime-time speakers at the Democratic national conventions since 1988.

Dan's wit and political acumen are well respected in Washington, D.C. and he is frequently called upon to supply remarks for speakers at roasts, dinners, congressional hearings, and debates in the Nation's Capitol.

Dan has worked with Michael Sheehan for corporate, labor, political, and public interest clients, preparing congressional testimony, writing speeches, and developing message strategies. Recent projects include satellite radio merger and student loan hearings, and two back-to-back successful ballot initiative campaigns in California.

Prior to serving two decades as Chief of Staff to Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-Colorado), Dan served in the Peace Corps in Peru and was a Peace Corps staff member in Washington in the late 1960s.

He consults regularly on projects in South America including presidential campaigns, a handicrafts development enterprise, and an antique photography archive. He has lectured on South American and Western U.S. topics at venues such as MountainFilm at Telluride and the Smithsonian Institution. Dan writes op-eds for major U.S. dailies.

Dan has appeared in and served as an advisor for several documentaries broadcast by PBS, the History Channel, Discovery, and other networks. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Dan has a B.A. in Political Science from the College of St. Thomas, and a J.D. from the University of Denver Law School.
