Daniel Hood Autobiography


 My name is Daniel Hood. I focus on policy and political news directly affecting the disability community, including housing, job placement, hobbies, talents, and dreams, and on telling their stories. 

I conduct interviews, edit, record, and produce audio as part of my work. I am also in the process of developing an online radio station. These skills and experiences have equipped me to communicate the issues and stories of the disability community effectively. 
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, going to parks, swimming, hiking, computers, and doing and trying new things.
I grew up in Forest Lake, Minnesota, with my brother Jason, my sister Beth, and my parents Bob and Patrice Hood. 
I attended special education classes and Special Olympics, lived in a couple of group homes, and Adult foster care.
My educational journey has been a significant part of my life. I graduated from Forest Lake and received my diploma through the North East Metro 916 Transition Program 1998. Recently, on October 4th, 2022, I received my Certificate for radio broadcasting from the Recording Radio Film Connection & CASA Schools. These achievements reflect my dedication to learning and growing in my field. 
Seeking a mentor, hands-on training, and experience in my areas of study at Radio Connection.
I moved out from my last group home in 2000 and have lived independently for 24 years.
