Editor’s Note:

Humans of Terakeet is a spotlight series dedicated to showcasing the dynamic team of humans that drive our company to new heights. We invite you to meet some of the world’s (in our entirely humble and unbiased opinion) most innovative, passionate, and wildly talented individuals. We are proud to introduce Dan Saita, who is a Senior Project Manager at Terakeet. The teams he manages will tell you he’s a jack of all trades, a cool, calm, and creative thinker who uncovers solutions to even the most complex situations. When he’s not crushing client goals, you can find him on the golf course, racking up the miles on his bike, or achieving his zen with some yoga.

Q1: How did you come to work at Terakeet? What is your favorite part about working here?

I had heard of Terakeet through numerous Syracuse friends & family members over the past few years. They always referred to it as an up & coming digital marketing agency based in Syracuse. When my fiancée and I made the decision to flee New York City for a more laid back, small-city lifestyle, Terakeet was a top contender for my next professional journey. 

My favorite part about working here is the constant problem-solving mindset that generates through the company. This combined with the collaborative environment allows us to work together, even as we’ve all transitioned to working remotely since March.

Q2: Tell us a little more about you outside of work! What’s one thing most people wouldn’t know about you? 

I have a golf obsession. If I could, I would play every day. 

Q3: What’s your current obsession? 

Cycling; my goal is to do a century ride (100 miles) before the end of the year. 

Q4: Choose a movie title for the story of your life.

“Hustle & Flow.”

Q5: What’s the strangest or coolest thing that’s ever happened to you?

When I was in college, I hung out with Wiz Khalifa after he performed Kush & OJ. I had a broken leg at the time; he signed my cast. 

Q6: What would your desert island band or artist be, and why?

This is a tough question. The best vibe for an island would probably be Bob Marley because his soul is so optimistic, chill, and uplifting. I’d need that to keep me sane while I built accommodations for myself, collected coconuts, and tried spear fishing to feed myself. 

Q7: What is one thing you’ve tried recently that has helped you stay calm and focused?

The YouTube Channel, ‘Yoga with Adriene.’
