Dan started playing the guitar at age seven, and by the time he was in high school was a developing performer, who was known for impressions of Elvis and the Bee Gees. Shortly after high school, Dan began writing and singing Contemporary Christian music in churches, at youth camps, wedding ceremonies and banquets. Dan opened for Parable, Children of the Day, Chuck Smith and Darrell Mansfield on various occasions in the seventies.
On several dates during the same time period he appeared on Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Kids Praise the Lord" and has had his music played on radio on a number of occasions. Dan recorded, “A Long Time Comin’”, which was released as an independent album on Filadelfia Records in 1995. While raising a family and working as a school principal, he continued performing and leading music in the church and school settings.
In 2005, Dan developed a neuro-degenerative disease called Parkinson’s Plus, because it involved both Parkinson’s Disease symptoms, plus other brain related symptoms. On his 2006 album entitled “I Will Go On” Dan demonstrated his guitar, vocal and song-writing talents, coming together on a nine song collection. This CD was released in the spring of 2006, and includes more of Dan’s original songs, such as “I Will Go On” written about his fight to overcome the difficulties caused by his neurological condition. Dan is presently writing and recording album number three.
