a picture of dan







Hi. I'm Dan Kappus.

I have expertise on a variety of subjects, including country music, tourism in Nashville, sociology, immigration, federal minimum wage and overtime laws, family and medical leave (FMLA), Soto Zen Buddhism, immigration and new Americans from Latin America, researching Federal regulations, the history of computing, and how to spend entire days doing nothing but arguing on Reddit. I live in North Nashville in a house I own, which I share with houseplants, frequent AirBnB guests, and my creativity. (I swear, creativity makes lots of messes, and takes up a lot of space. Just sayin'.)

I'm a 1994 graduate of Decatur High School and a 1998 graduate of Warren Wilson College. I was awarded a master's (MA) in sociology in 2009 from Illinois State University. Some of the other places and institutions I've been pleased to pass through include San Francisco, Seattle, Tucson, a batey in the Dominican Republic, and a monastery near Carmel Valley, CA. I've done all sorts of things. It's been a good life so far.

Past employers have included a couple of dotcom start-ups, a summer camp, the Federal agency that funds school lunches, Uber, and the Federal agency that enforces the minimum wage.
