Dan studied Performing Arts at University before eventually moving backstage and working as a Stage Manager and Development Manager at the Be Your Best Foundation for approximately 14 years. The Foundation staged Rock Challenge events across the UK which gave Dan the opportunity to work in an incredibly varied selection of venues from Hackney Empire to Hull Ice Arena. From Sheffield Arena (capacity 13,600) to Arbroath Webster Theatre (capacity 590).

Following this, Dan spent 2 years as a Marketing Officer at Rowans Hospice, massively increasing social media following and spearheading a successful campaign for a Hospice patient to be allowed to watch the final Star Wars movie with his son before the official international release date. Dan now counts Bob Iger, Disney Chairman of the Board, as one of his personal friends. Even if Bob doesn’t know it.

In his spare time, Dan likes exploring the countryside, cheeseboards, long walks, BBQs, stargazing, pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
