Dan was born and raised in Naperville, IL (a few miles south of Chicago). He received his Bachelors degree in Organizational Communications from a small private school also in Naperville. He then went out of state, way up north, to the University of North Dakota to receive his Masters in Higher Education. During his Masters program, Dan spent much of his research on Upper Division students and the skills they need to learn before they graduate. In his free time Dan loves to travel, go on road trips, and discover new music. He loves the diverse geography of the Pacific Northwest and enjoys exploring all there is to do in Washington!
