Dan was born in New Jersey, raised in Michigan, and now live in Grants Pass, Oregon. In 2002, Dan received his BA in English Literature from Michigan State University. Since that time, he has enjoyed a variety of odd jobs from substitute teaching, to night janitor, to running spotlight for Air Supply. While his mainstay has been carpentry (remodel and new construction), it is this wealth of experience (from coast to coast) that lends him a unique outlook and understanding of our social hodgepodge. Dan enjoys reading, writing, hiking, camping, disc golf, the Great Lakes, music, cities, and much, much, more.
