Dan has a varied background with experiences ranging from constructing houses to constructing code. Right out of high school he started his own web company, which he ran while studying photography and mixed media installation at SUNY Purchase and the International Center of Photography. After ten years he sold that business and spent some time traveling the world, learning to build upcycled solar houses called earthships. He eventually moved back to New York where he started an urban lumber company. Throughout all of this he spent his free time learning how to code, until he realized that he could turn this hobby into a career. He now loves working as part of a team and is happy to have finally found his calling as a front end developer.
