Videographer, CSN Mid-Atlantic
Dan Criswell is a photojournalist and video editor with more than 20 years of experience. He currently works at CGTN America in Washington, D.C. His assignments have taken him to China, Japan, Canada and nearly every state in the U.S.
As an avid scuba diver and trail hiker, Dan would rather be in the water with tiger sharks or lost in the woods of Acadia National Park.
He grew up in Wheeling, West Virginia, where there were no soccer shoes in the early 80’s. Dan wore baseball cleats on the soccer field for his first two years playing in his small town – this was the inspiration for getting involved with Leveling the Playing Field. Dan went on to win a State Club Championship in high school and helped coach the women’s team at Bethany College to a PAC Championship.
He lives in Washington, D.C. with his wife Anna and their rescue dog, Penny Lane.
