Born in Utah, raised in California, Dan is the Manager of Southern Utah Adventure Center (SUAC), having worked at SUAC since 2015 he knows a lot of the trails around and is a great resource for knowledge on the area.
Dan realized adventure was his calling as a kid, going camping, fishing, and taking random dirt roads to see where they go with his family. His drive for adventure led him to join the United State Marine Corps at 18, supporting a Tank unit in Southern California driving humvees, and whatever else he could find with a steering wheel. After going on a couple deployments, and traveling the world he started his next adventure and left the Marines after four years. He’s lived in multiple states but ultimately settled on southern Utah for the views, terrain, and relaxing lifestyle. You can usually find him at the lake, in the sand dunes, or road tripping to California for the weekend. His passions include driving, snowboarding, working out, making jokes, and relaxing by any body of water he can find with a drink in hand.
If you looking for a guide with plenty of jokes and some attitude to go with it, Dan’s the man.
