More about Dan:
I am 6’10 and an Oakland University graduate.  I played college basketball at Rutgers University and Oakland University before earning my degree from OU. I love to watch the Red Wings, Tigers and I am a long suffering Lions fan for the past 28 years.  I really enjoy cooking, I was a line cook in college and love being in the kitchen.   I owe everything I am to my family: Sharon (Mother) Mark (Father), Jason and Brandon (Brothers), they mean the world to me and I am the person I am today because of the support and encouragement from my family.  Lastly, the woman in m life, Clare.  She has been my rock and my partner in crime for the past 3 and a half years, without her I would not have been able to accomplish what I have, both professionally and personally.  Everything I have done I owe to these people.
