Daniel Delaney is a food media producer and entrepreneur, who, after finishing a street food thesis at The University of the Arts, launched VendrTV, a weekly web video series about street food. “On a mission to find the best street food around,” Dan and his crew set out to discover mobile eats from Maine to Santa Monica, and everywhere in between. As VendrTV’s audience grew and America’s hunger for street food increased, the show made its way into mainstream media, being featured on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric and The Sunday Morning News, as well as in USA Today, The LA Times, and The NY Daily News. In addition to profiling the best street carts across America, the show has also featured web celebrities including Gary Vaynerchuk, Veronica Belmont, and Jake & Amir. 2011 marks VendrTV’s 2nd anniversary and its 90th episode and counting. Dan is currently developing a television show, and working on his first book, both about street food.
After recognizing a difficulty in staying informed about New York’s food events, Dan launched Eater’s Digest, a weekly email newsletter which aggregates and centralized all food-related activities happening in and around New York City.
In 2011, Dan made his New Year’s resolution to learn about new foods through a daily web series called WTF: “What’s This Food?” Consequently, Dan re-launched his website, DanielDelaney.com, to organize all his recent food projects, including his new food blog, Delaney Eats.
Dan has independently worked with food brands to create video and blog content and has produced several street food events across the country. He is available for hire as a freelance food media producer and event organizer.
Dan currently lives in Brooklyn, NY with his girlfriend Miko, with whom he hosts a barbecue supper club and bikes the city. Dan’s also been known to set out on many mile pilgrimages to take a taste of a legendary burger, or three.
