Born and raised in Maine, Dan finished a master’s in Community Planning and Development at the University of Southern Maine before moving out west for a few years where he worked in sustainable food systems and food insecurity.

More recently, Dan moved back east to Vermont to be a good uncle. Since coming back to New England, he has been soaking up the sun with brush in hand at Green Mountain Painters for two summer seasons.

During the off-seasons, Dan has been working towards re-establishing himself as a high school teacher and a woodworking hobbyist.
