About Dan Beckmann

Dan Beckmann worked as a cameraman for NBC News for 15 years. While on staff in Tel Aviv, he helped cover the continuation of the Middle East Peace Process. His travels have taken him throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, helping NBC cover a wide range of stories: from the Olympics in Torino, to coverage of 9-11 at Ground Zero, Hurricane Katrina, and presidential campaigns aboard Air Force One. Aside from The Today Show, Dateline, Nightly News with Brian Williams, and MSNBC, Dan's work has also been featured on Good Morning America, ESPN, CBS News, CNN, National Geographic, A&E, the BBC, and many other programs worldwide.

Dan is an accomplished columnist, speaks four languages, flies airplanes, loves wine and plays the piano badly. Most likely a result of the wine.

He's traveled a long way from Fenton, Missouri.
