A scientist.  An actor.  A chef.  An architect.  Imagine a job where you could attend every profession's trade show, business meeting, product release, or strategy session.  That's what I do... and it's as close as I could get to being everything."  Dan is avid reader, an indefatigable explorer of food, music, film, and art, and thoroughly enjoys solving any technical problem that happens to come his way.  Dan holds a degree in Communications from UCSD.  He is currently the Head Video Engineer for Power Plus Productions in Vista, California.
