He was first introduced to the "biz" at nine years old, when his
neighbor, a projectionist at the local drive-in movie
theater took him to
work. He learned how to run the projector,
and when the man became ill, one
evening, Dan was left to
run the show successfully which lead to the
development of a
hidden burning desire to entertain people. His love for
books led him to understand the art of directing, story telling,
storyboarding his own scripts. Even though he had
through the years such as owning his
own construction company at 17,
teaching martial arts,
and studying architectural drafting, his love for the
business was lying beneath the surface.
From attending the international film festivals to promote his films his interest gradually began to turn towards writing and producing his own projects. He also worked under the direction of Academy winner Brian Savenger, and Cannes Film Festival winner Rene Cardona, Jr., David Worth (Kickboxer), John Badham (Saturday Night Fever), and Ted Kaplan, Christopher Webster, Cecchi Gori, Carlo Vanzina, and Michael Tadross.
He has lived, and worked
in the most glorious countries
