Daniel Brown joined The Land Trust team in January 2017 as Communications Manager. In his role, Daniel helps tell the story of The Land Trust for Tennessee and the community-minded landowners and partners working to forever protect and preserve lands across the state.
Born and raised outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, Daniel has long been driven to lift up and support the people and places in his community through the power of storytelling. After earning his Bachelors of Journalism from Indiana University, Daniel journeyed to Texas to promote the City of Austin’s “Zero Waste”, recycling, composting and environmental initiatives. In 2014, Daniel was drawn to Nashville for its proximity to family, close friends and its ever-present flow of music, but it was the strong sense of community and historical roots that led him to make Tennessee his home. Before joining The Land Trust, Daniel shared the narratives of Nashville’s selfless volunteers working to make a difference in the community during his time at Hands On Nashville.
In his spare time, Daniel can be found exploring Nashville’s vibrant neighborhoods with his wife, Lauren, strumming along to records on his beloved Martin guitar, or walking his puggle, Cooper, around the Cornelia Fort Airpark in East Nashville.
Why do you love your job? Every inch of our land has a story, and I have the good fortune to tell them. There are countless individuals and organizations working every day to protect and preserve beautiful, vital and iconic Tennessee landscapes, and I’m inspired to be part of an organization protecting land with great passion for the greater good.
