Daniel Robertson moved from Arkansas to North Carolina in 2004 to pursue his undergraduate studies at Catawba College in Salisbury. He graduated with two Master of Science degrees in Environmental Science and Sustainable Business. After graduation, Daniel worked for a non-profit environmental organization, The Center for the Environment, where he managed a federal recovery grant from the Department of Energy. His work provided paid internships for current students and recent graduates in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector. Daniel came to UNC Charlotte in July 2011 for the Master of Urban Design program. He completed his first master degree just before beginning the Master of Science in Real Estate program. Upon completion of the MSRE program, Daniel hopes to specialize in mixed use, dense, walkable, urban space, adaptive reuse, and brownfield development.
