Daniel H. Jacobson is an American-Israeli filmmaker based in Tel Aviv. Born and raised in Lancaster, PA, he graduated from Clark University with a degree in International Relations and moved to Tel Aviv in 2008, briefly working in the field of counter terrorism.
After completing his military service, he bounced around for a few years writing, playing music, traveling and working odd jobs before enrolling in film school. He dropped out in his third year to finish his short film, "Down the River" - little did he know the project would take four years to complete.
Dan is currently working on an original television series and a feature film.
