Dan Katz lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where he teaches and coordinates calculus courses at Brown University. In addition to his career and his puzzling pursuits, he has dabbled as an actor, a playwright, a director, and a singer-songwriter; all of which, it turns out, are much harder to do when one has a full-time job.
Dan has written puzzlehunt puzzles for the MIT Mystery Hunt, the Gen Con Puzzle Hunt, and BAPHL. His puzzles have also appeared in Wired, MAA Focus, and Games World of Puzzles. His most notorious gift to the puzzling community is the follow-the-deranged-directions puzzle format known as the Duck Konundrum, for which he sincerely apologizes.
