Dan Gorham has had a passion for performing and writing since he was a kid. He began writing short stories when he was seven years old, and got his first voice over job at age 15 after the store manager at Shaw’s Supermarket in Medfield Massachusetts singled him out to record the weekly specials played over the loudspeaker.
In college he was a DJ at the underground radio station at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, before completing his Bachelor’s degree in the combined major of Communications, Writing and Psychology.
After college, he lived in Key West, Florida, where he wore many hats as an on-air personality, copywriter, engineer, and producer at WKRY Key West. During his two-year tenure, the station jumped in Arbitron ratings from #4 to #1 overall in the market. He also MCed many events and performed his first stand-up while in Key West.
After feeling intense pangs of homesickness for his native Boston, Dan moved back to Massachusetts, and worked as an MC and promoter for Star 93.7, while also working in the Suffolk University Public Affairs Office. Dan transitioned his talents for performance and voice work into a career as an event DJ and MC at bars, private parties, and corporate events, quickly expanding into his own business.
Dan is currently the owner of Gorham Productions, a company he founded and runs, while continuing to DJ/MC events and do voice-over and on-camera hosting work. In his spare time, Dan dabbles in singing/songwriting, and performs stand-up comedy in and around Boston.
He continues to love writing, and has written many short stories and screenplays. His semi-autobiographical script “Standing Up” won 3rd Prize at the Las Vegas International Short Script Awards, and was produced into a short film which was an Official Selection of the 2013 Boston International Film Festival. The film stars Randy Marquis (Ghosts, The Death of Abraham Lincoln), Zele Avradopoulos (Paul Blart: Mall Cop), and Ted Arcidi (The Town, The Fighter, 30 Rock, Nurse Jackie). Dan acted as co-director, producer, editor, and actor, along with Diverging Soul’s Brian Gravel.
