Dan was born in New Jersey, but at a young age his family moved to Roswell, NM where he was raised on an alfalfa farm and horse ranch. Shortly after graduating high school, Dan was diagnosed with cancer and underwent 4 months of surgery and chemotherapy. That led him to the decision to follow his dream to play music. Although not a musician at the time, he did love to sing and ended up attending South Plains College in Levelland, TX to study “Commercial Music”. After leaving Levelland, Dan toured as a professional musician and singer around Texas and Oklahoma for 12 years. He met his wife, Rachael in 2001 and they married in 2003. In 2004 Dan had the opportunity to move back to New Mexico and work in the investment industry. Dan and Rachael have four children, two who attend EVCA, and two who will start kindergarten at EVCA in the fall of 2021. Dan has a firm belief in EVCA’s mission and the commitment that EVCA’s Teachers, Administration, Governing Council, and Foundation give to our children.
