2. Relevant Biography

a) Please refer to the ARIN Advisory Council Guidance to the 2023 Nomination Committee in answering this question:

i) Please describe your relevant professional experience and expertise and explain how this background will make you an effective AC member.

Daniel has over 16 years of experience architecting, designing, deploying, and operating IP networks. Throughout the course of his career, he has held roles of increasing responsibility to include but not limited to IP Address Management (supernet through individual host assignments), IP routing and switching, load-balancers, firewalls, optical line systems, and system administration. Throughout this time, he has had to work with multiple parties to align on the standards and deployments that govern how the network will be architected and operated.

Daniel graduated from Colorado Technical University with an MBA in Finance and Data Analytics and a Master of Science in Information Technology, Network Management. He received his Bachelor’s degree from CTU in Information Technology, Network Management with a minor in Project Management.

ii) Attach a resume, curriculum vitae, or other biography highlighting your experience most relevant to the duties of the AC. Do not include your home address or personal contact information on the resume, as it will be made public as part of the election material.


iii) Optionally, you may also include additional web links to external websites (e.g., social media), though not as a substitute for your biography.

No Response

b) The role of the Advisory Council is to advise the Board of Trustees on Internet number resource policy and related matters. Describe a similar experience you have had in such an advisory role.

As looked upon as a subject matter expert on multiple domains across networking, I am often asked for my advice and guidance to assist in architecting various aspects of the network. This would include gathering data to understand the problem they are trying to solve. Once that is collected, I would work with the peers in those groups to jointly create a solidified plan to be presented as an advisory on the situation.

3. Eligibility

a) Please disclose any conflicts of interest you may have, real or perceived, that would impact your ability to perform your duty as a member of ARIN’s Advisory Council. How do you propose to resolve any such conflicts?

A perceived conflict would be that I work for Charter Communications and would have the interest of my company in mind. As I do with many other decisions, I always look at the bigger picture of how this affects more than just my current scope of responsibilities and how it would affect others that may not be directly involved in the decision-making process. If there were such a conflict that I could not back away from, I would abstain from providing guidance and/or voting on said matters.

b) Are you currently eligible to serve on the Advisory Council according to the Conflicts of Interest Policy?


c) If not currently eligible, how will you become eligible to serve if elected (i.e. “If elected, I will resign from the position of ________ before 31 Dec 2023”). If not applicable, simply enter “N/A”.


d) Describe any limitations on your ability to: attend AC and Public Policy Meetings in person; or serve all of the elected term.

No limitations

4. Nominee Information

a) Have you attended ARIN meetings or otherwise participated in ARIN activities in the past? What did you find the most rewarding from those meetings or activities? What suggestions for improvement do you have?

Yes, I attended the last ARIN meeting in Tampa, FL. I found the most rewarding aspect of the various members of the community involved in discussing policy and how it relates to the internet ecosystem.

b) What areas of Internet number resource policy, if any, need more attention by ARIN; why?

As time progresses, there will be areas that become obsolete that need to be reviewed.

c) Aside from the professional experience and expertise detailed above, describe any other specific skills, background, and/or areas of expertise you believe will assist the Advisory Council in carrying out its duties.

  2. Mark Robinson

    I have not always had the pleasure of working with someone like Daniel and am frequently challenged towards constant improvement and fully understanding why. Daniel is always thinking several steps ahead and has an ability to input large volumes of information and understand both where something is and where it should be. He can quickly review the data that’s available, identify gaps with a high level of accuracy and usually knows the answer before others have arrived. He spans across many technology areas and quickly learns new technologies with an ability to retain and apply what he’s learned. Daniel also networks effectively and always seeks to understand all the available options and identify the path that best fits the overall needs.

  3. John Hendrickson

    I have had the pleasure of working closely with Daniel over the past 7 years and have been consistently impressed by their exceptional technical expertise and dedication to their work.

    Daniel possesses an extensive range of technical skills and knowledge that spans across various industries and disciplines. His understanding of technology is not only broad, covering areas such as software development, hardware design, and network architecture, but also remarkable in depth. He consistently demonstrates a keen ability to quickly grasp complex concepts and implement them flawlessly, a skill much needed for this position.

    Based on my experience working with Daniel, I have no doubt that he would be an invaluable asset to this organization. His wide and deep knowledge of technology, combined with exceptional problem-solving abilities and strong teamwork skills, makes him an ideal candidate for this role.

    I wholeheartedly recommend Daniel and am confident that he will make significant contributions to any team or project he is a part of. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any further questions regarding Daniel’s qualifications or capabilities.

    Simply put Daniel is inquisitive, knowledgably, driven, and detail oriented. I have worked with Daniel over the past 3 years where I have had the opportunity to observe the sheer breadth of his knowledge. We expect executives to understand their business and be able to connect the technology to the business, Daniel does this every day. In addition Daniel is one of the few executives to proactively gain a thorough understanding of the technology being applied and often provides insightful guidance and to his team, vendors, and peers. In addition to the technology Daniel goes out of his way to get to know his peers in the industry to stay atop of emerging technologies. It is my opinion that ARIN would benefit greatly from Daniel’s insight, experience, and willingness to question assumptions with the intention constantly improve our industry.

  5. Matt Ramos

    I have had the privilege of closely collaborating with Daniel for several years, and his track record speaks volumes amongst his colleagues. He is widely regarded as an exemplary technical leader consistently demonstrating an unwavering commitment to taking ownership of his responsibilities. Daniel possesses the highest degree of credibility and trust within our professional community. His decision making consistently reflects a blend of logical and ethical considerations, always putting the customer’s needs at the forefront . Daniel’s exceptional ability to guide a highly technical team towards a long term vision is truly remarkable. It’s rare to find a seasoned leader with such a profound depth of technical expertise in my view Daniel Schatte stands out among the candidates and I wholeheartedly endorse him as an exceptional choice for the Arin Advisory Council.

  6. Donovan Reade

    Throughout my career I’ve witnessed Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in just about every field that were impressive in their own right. These SMEs knew their subject, but often failed to have the abilities to combine multiple subjects into full area of understanding. Daniel, however, is so knowledgeable across so many subjects that he is capable of bringing many areas together because of his broad and deep knowledge base. Given IP is at the heart of all connectivity, Daniel could provide the body for the heart to sit within, so that ARIN is capable of making broad decisions with deep technical applications that many find difficult to connect.
