Guerrero, Dan

Hide Profile

Dan Guerrero began his eclectic career in New York where he was a successful theatrical agent with clients in countless Broadway musicals and plays. He returned home to Los Angeles for an equally successful time as a casting director for stage and television before turning to producing. He has been widely-acclaimed as a highly creative independent producer of diverse programming for network and cable television in both English and Spanish. At the same time, he has produced, written and directed non-broadcast live events at such prestigious venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, the House of Blues in West Hollywood and the Cite de la Musique in Paris, France.

Guerrero is considered an early pioneer in the U.S. Latino market and has been twice honored by the distinguished Imagen Foundation for bringing positive Latino images to the screen. Hispanic Magazine also recognized him as"one of the 25 most powerful Hispanics in Hollywood."

Guerrero has served on grant panels for the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, addressed special events on a national level including the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce National Convention and often speaks on panels and at seminars throughout the country. He is a member of the Writers Guild of America and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
