Executive Director, Arms Control Association

Daryl has worked in the nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation field for 30 years. He joined the Arms Control Association (ACA) as its executive director in 2001. Since then, he has energized ACA’s program and outreach efforts, expanded its staff, revitalized its monthly journal Arms Control Today, and positioned ACA to play a leading role on key weapons-related security debates. From 1997 to 2001, he was executive director of the Coalition to Reduce Nuclear Dangers, and from 1989 to 1997, he worked as associate director for policy and later as director of security programs for Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR). At PSR, he organized media, lobbying, and public education campaigns against nuclear weapons production and testing, as well as research projects on the health and environmental impacts of the nuclear arms race.

I am most excited to work on projects that… leverage the energy, skills, and political power of a wide range of organizations and individuals toward common efforts to reduce and eliminate nuclear weapons risks.

I am looking for partners who can help me… try to save the world from nuclear catastrophe.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… seeing a former staff member go on to succeed and excel, and when the impact of our organization’s work is evident in moving toward positive outcomes.

Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… include finding new ways to widen the ranges, constituencies, and partners we engage with to seek a more peaceful, just, and safer world.
