He is the founder of Catholic Spiritual Direction, the most widely read blog on the topic of authentic Catholic spirituality and the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation. Dan is also the Executive Director and writer for EWTN’s National Catholic Register, a co-host on Register Radio, a weekly guest on Teresa Tomeo’s Catholic Connection, and an author and speaker who is grateful to share his conversion story along with the great spiritual heritage of saints and doctors of the Church.

and Catholic View for Women programs along with numerous radio programs. Dan’s latest book Navigating the Interior Life – Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God recently won the award for best Catholic book of the year.
