Dan Beyer is the Make Studio Program Manager at JUMP, and the organizer of ILLUMiBRATE, a Light & Color Festival. Dan came to Boise fresh out of Boston where he was making public art all across the country. Due to having spent many years bouncing across the United States, Dan likes to say he’s from somewhere in the east and elsewhere in the west. When he’s not building forts with his daughter or outside, tracking down specimen samples with his wife who is a biology professor at BSU, he tends to indulge in esoteric pursuits. Often this means watching college lecture series on General Relativity, Quantum mechanics and anything Feynman ever put in a film.
