Dan developed an interest in theatre in his native Cleveland, where he attended productions at Cleveland Playhouse, Cain Park and Karamu and the experimental black boxes that permeated the local universities. After moving to Arizona he studied acting at Phoenix Theatre (then PLT) and later in the STAGES program at the Herberger Theater Center. His favorite roles include 'Ruben' in Aaron Sorkins's Hidden in This Picture by Untapped Theatre and 'Monty' in James Garcia's Chuy by Colores Actors-Writers Workshop. Dan serves on The Studio Board with a primary focus on audience development. He is represented by the Leighton Agency.
