Dan loves to play electric guitar and bass and plays on the church's worship team. He is a football fan and his team is the Cleveland Browns (don't hold that against him)! He has climbed 28 of the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks. He loves to run and you will more than likely see him running out in the community.
