About Me

I earned my Master of Science in Industrial-Organizational Psychology (the science of work) from San Francisco State University in May 2014. My research interests are in workforce or personnel analytics, person-environment fit, and resume use. My Master’s thesis investigated whether volunteer experience could compensate for an unemployment gap.

I started this site to teach myself web development and as an outlet for artistic expression. This portion of the site is developed on the WordPress platform, but Ignis Sacer,an interdisciplinary project, was coded completely from scratch.

My complete professional history is available on LinkedIn. You can reach me at: daniel (at) danielmaurath.com

Background Image

Here is the original image I manipulated. It was taken by Thomas Hawk and found via a Creative Commons search on Flickr.


I removed the background from the image using Pixelmator, an image editing app for the Mac.



Then I added the gradient background layer below and merged it with the image layer above.


The final image was cropped to fit the header.
