Daniel grew up among the redwoods of the South Bay and Santa Cruz areas of California. He studied sociology and graduated with honors from Portland State University where he met his wife Melody, a nurse, avid Y2U volunteer and New Mexico native. They subsequently left Oregon and traveled around the western United States, cultivating their love for the region's varied landscapes and ultimately settling and residing in Logan, Utah, with their mutt Hero. Daniel works in the tourism industry, and when he's not doing that, you'll find him fly fishing his local waters, backpacking, or concocting some creation in his kitchen.
