Dan was born in Broomfield Colorado, and graduated from the University of Montana with a BA in History and Political Science. He started working on farms when dumb luck landed him on a Scottish Dairy farm and he discovered the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) program. He spent three years as an Agriculture/Environment Peace Corps volunteer in Malawi, where he fell in love with keeping bees and confirmed the notion that he wanted to make a career and a lifestyle out of farming. He teaches multiple beekeeping classes at Stone Barns Center as well as the Brooklyn Grange. He is a certified Journeyman level beekeeper through the University of Monanta apiculture program. He sat on the board of directors for the Backyard Beekeepers Association of Connecticut, and spent a month working with beekeepers in Uganada through the USAid Farmer to Farmer program.
