Dan Simms

Dan has studied biology, music, and English at the undergraduate and graduate level, and he always believed there was some harmonious connection between all that he had studied. He garnered an interest in psychedelics shortly after getting his master’s in English literature and he quickly grew to love sharing his passion for mind-altering substances. They proved to be the link he believed connected the arts and the sciences.

Originally planning on becoming a professor, Dan switched gears and began writing for online publications in the cannabis and psychedelic spaces. He lives in New York, where he continues to expand his mind and his understanding of the deeply connective properties of these substances.
