Daniel Ludevig '05
Internship with Reyum, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Hometown: Yorktown, NY
After graduation, Dan worked at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), where he was a patient advocate, working to develop trustful relationships with patients to help them sort through the confusion and fear of cancer treatment. He also found himself a second (unofficial) job at MSKCC as a translator/interpreter in both Russian and Spanish for patient exam-room sessions. Daniel eventually moved on to pursue another passion, securing work as a designer at the architecture firm Kushnerstudios. After a year of hard work on the construction and design of his own apartment in New York, he received a spread in the spring 2008 issue of American Institute of Architects (AIA) magazine. Daniel has recently launched a new concept and website called  "Dancing with Management." The concept uses ballroom dancing lead/follow theory as a means to help managers improve their ability to work with one another and with their employees. Daniel hopes to integrate these workshops in a variety of settings, including businesses large and small, hospitals, schools, and non-profit organizations.
