Daniel A. Henderson is a sculptor and inventor. His prototype wireless devices were received at the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution.
Henderson was assistant to Kazuo Hashimoto, the inventor of Caller ID and the modern answering machine, and also worked with Jack Kilby, inventor of the computer chip.
He founded a number of technology companies and was formerly with IBM.
His father, an artist and award-winning creative director, exposed Mr. Henderson to art early on. He spent his youth painting signs, sketching, wood working and restoring cars. This early interest in form and design and background as a technologist led to his focus on sculpture.
He is involved in numerous philanthropic efforts, including The Tech Museum of Innovation, The Cliburn Foundation and various educational institutions.
After an honorable discharge with the United States Marine Corps, Mr. Henderson earned two degrees from Southern Oregon University, where he also received the 1999 Distinguished Alumni award. Mr. Henderson also received an Honorary Doctor of Science degree from New Jersey Institute of Technology.
He resides in Fort Worth, Texas.
