Getting to know Dan

Favorite quote: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us most.”

If Dan could meet anyone, past or present, it would be: Jesus

What motivates Dan: To live this mantra daily. “Success is the person who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of children, who leaves the world better than they found it, who has never lacked appreciation for the Earth’s beauty, who never fails to look for the best in others or give the best of themselves.”

Favorite holiday: Christmas – seeing his kids’ faces light up when the holiday approaches, the magic in the air and their anticipation that Santa Clause will be coming – nothing better!

Biggest accomplishment: Without a doubt, his wonderful family!
