Dan Raby is the digital media specialist for Public Broadcasting Atlanta – which basically means he spends all day creating cool content for the web and mobile devices.

A public media nerd from an early age, Dan bounced between his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina and Washington, DC working for various radio stations of all shapes and kinds. He’s worked for WRDU-FM, Sirius XM, and NPR Music (though not all those companies at the same time).

After living in DC he’s glad to be back in a city that knows what good Southern comfort food is. He will talk your ear off about old newspaper comics if you give him a chance.

He holds a degree in Communication Studies from American University.
