Daniel grew up moving around due to his dad being a career military member so naturally he followed in his father’s footsteps. Dan enlisted in the Marine Corps as an Amphibious Assault Vehicle Crewman and served 8 total years in the military. After he finished his time in the military he pursued his interests in the outdoors and has worked as a mountain bike guide and helps teach veterans proper rock and ice climbing techniques. In May/June of 2015 Dan successfully climbed Denali unguided with Veterans Expeditions. When Dan is not traveling with work he is most likely outside hiking or climbing with friends or with Veterans Expeditions.
