About Dan Mosley

My name is Dan Mosley. I am 19 years old and currently studying film at Drexel University, but I'm getting ahead of myself. To go back to where it all started, I grew up in Voorhees, New Jersey. I have two older sisters, Candace and Lauren, and two great parents, Bob and Carolyn. I attended Osage Elementary School, where I was placed in advanced math classes and the gifted and talented program because of my intellectual prowess (words that I didn't understand at the time). Throughout my elementary school career, I tried my hand (and foot) at a myriad of sports, my two favorites being baseball and soccer.

Making my way into middle school, I started to feel somewhat outcasted by my peers, sticking to only a few close friends and trading many of my athletics for the chess club. I only continued with soccer, becoming the Voorhees Sabers' head sweeper (essentially the head of defense). I was still in the gifted and talented program, but I was starting to think the whole thing was kind of stupid. By the time I made it to high school, I had dropped soccer for lack of true enjoyment. At this point, I finally pursued what I had always dreamed of doing: I auditioned for the theatre shows at my school. The first show that I auditioned for was Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, when I was cast as Nick Bottom, the comedic lead of the play. The experience was amazing, and because of it, I became a part of the group of students at my school known as the theatre kids. I performed in more shows such as City of Angels, Pirates of Penzance, the student-directed one-act shows, and NJDFL's improvisation pair competitions.

All of my friends were now theatre kids, which helped my growing passion for filmmaking to finally take form. In my sophomore year of high school, I started to work on independent film projects and took my first of all three levels of the video production classes at my school to work on my craft. By my senior year, I was well known as the filmmaker at my high school, and people were always asking for roles in my films. With such amazing support from my friends and peers, I was inspired to pursue my dreams and become a film major at Drexel University. Since I started college, I have worked on several films with upperclassmen and was admitted to the Drexel Football Team, the school's improvisational comedy group that performs free shows. Currently, I couldn't be happier, spending each day working towards a career in the field that I love.
