Dan Koday is a New York City-based travel and lifestyle writer, editor, and content expert. Before working as a freelancer and consultant, Dan held editor titles at Time Inc. (now Dotdash Meredith), Condé Nast, and Hearst. Today, his work is found in prestigious publications including Condé Nast Traveler, Brides, Business Insider, Purewow, InStyle, Robb Report, and Food & Wine. As a queer traveler, Dan is conscious of how LGBTQIA+ travelers prefer to spend their hard-earned cash and vacation time, and strides to recommend inclusive and safe destinations that are a fit for those travelers. When he's not traveling or writing about said travels, he enjoys skiing and the subsequent après-ski scene. In every place he travels and reports on, Dan enjoys seeking out dining experiences and cultural activities and hunting for his next pair of shoes.
