Dan joined the staff of Aspen Historical Society in February of 2020 as the Development Director. Dan grew up in upstate New York where he attended and graduated from Siena College while playing on their Division 1 Men’s Basketball team. After graduation, Dan began a journey south to Atlanta, GA, working as Project/Regional Manager in the MIS world. In the mid 90’s he went back for his Masters degree in Theology and went on to work first in Vail, Colorado (5 years) as both a pastor for The Vail Church and as a ski instructor for Vail Ski School; then he “saw the light” and moved on over to Aspen where he had been pastoring since 2005 at Crossroads Church, only a few blocks away. In fall of 2018, Dan stepped back from his pastoral role at Crossroads, where he helped oversee their three million dollar building renovation, among many other things, to launch his tv/film career in Atlanta, GA. Having acted in theater for the last 30 years, just for fun, Dan has been honing his craft in the tv/film industry but wanted his home base to still be Aspen, CO. He is besides himself at the opportunity to reestablish himself in Aspen, teaming with the rest of the talented AHS staff to help take it to the next level, while also hoping to still travel to shoot a few cool shows a year in his free time. He loves to hike, bike, ski and just enjoy this amazing town called, Aspen.
