Daniel Herman
Daniel Herman received his doctorate in Literature in 2011, from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, under the supervision of Vincent O’Sullivan, former Poet Laureate of New Zealand. He is the author of Zen and the White Whale: A Buddhist Rendering of Moby-Dick, which arose from his years of residential Buddhist practice at the San Francisco Zen Center (Tassajara and Green Gulch) and overseas. He also organized the first San Francisco Moby-Dick Marathon in October 2015, which has since become an annual event. He teaches various Humanities classes at Maybeck High School in Berkeley, California, where he lives with his wife, two young daughters, and medium-sized dog.
