A bit about me: I was born in Detroit in 1961 and migrated with my family to Australia in 1973 where I have lived ever since. I quickly lost my American accent but maintain to this day a mild addiction to Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

I have recently finished a 6 month contract as a geologist in Eritrea, Africa. It was quite an adventure.

My work for a harm prevention charity, The Pathways Foundation which delivers Rites of Passage programs (Pathways to Manhood and Pathways into Womanhood) inspired my first book 'Leaving Neverland' (Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations).

I was a radio host for four years, a stand up comic, senior executive, business owner, inventor, geologist, father and husband and we all live together which is a bit

“In a desperate attempt to stay young forever we have achieved eternal childishness, rather than eternal youth.”
Daniel Prokop, Leaving Neverland: Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations

“There are some people that see the half full cup and get upset about where the other half of the cup went... With an attitude like that, they will never be happy. I see a half full cup and I immediately take half of someone else’s cup and then I have a full cup and I’m happy. With the right attitude, life is really very simple." Peter Pan from 'Leaving Neverland' (Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations)”
Daniel Prokop, Leaving Neverland: Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations

“We live in an adolescent society, Neverland, where never growing up seems more the norm than the exception. Little boys wearing expensive suits and adult bodies should not be allowed to run big corporations. They shouldn’t be allowed to run governments, armies, religions, small businesses and charities either and just quietly, they make pretty shabby husbands and fathers too. Mankind has become Pankind and whilst “lost boys” abound, there is also an alarming increase in the number of “lost girls.”

“In a desperate attempt to stay young forever we have achieved eternal childishness, rather than eternal youth.”
Daniel Prokop, Leaving Neverland: Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations

“NEVERLAND:The imaginary island home of Peter Pan and the lost boys. A place where you never grow up. Michael Jackson’s former retreat. An accurate description of the 21st century.”
Daniel Prokop, Leaving Neverland: Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations

“Even amidst tragedy there is laughter, sometimes farce. The degree of farce depends on who is running the tragedy.”
Daniel Prokop, Leaving Neverland: Why Little Boys Shouldn't Run Big Corporations

“When the management iceberg is shaped like a huge phallus, you know that there are a lot of tossers that the top penguin has had to climb over to reach the tip and that there is no shortage of the same caliber of penguin in the balls and shaft of the corporation, just waiting for their chance to get a spurt to the top. Should I sugar coat this a little more? or tell it like it is?”
