It’s true what they say: Dan is the man. He’s forever cool; a true living legend…in his own mind. 

Originally from Ithaca, New York, Dan’s family moved to Sarasota in 1988.  He attended the University of Florida and graduated with a degree in advertising.  At school, he met his future wife and after graduation they planted their feet back in the cool white sands of Sarasota, where they are currently parents of a 4-year-old ninja.  An employee of Sarasota since 2007, Dan has seen the ups downs of our market and is a specialist in navigating our constantly evolving local media scene.  

When he’s not helping clients with their marketing needs, Dan spends his weekends hanging out with his wife and rad little dude at the beach.  Also an enthusiastic proponent of Sarasota's local downtown scene, Dan and his family can be seen wandering the farmers market, hanging out at Bayfront Park and grubbing or partaking in cocktails at one of downtown Sarasota’s many culinary gems.  Did we also mention that he loves all things whiskey?

Whiskey's everywhere these days, but who in Sarasota is pouring the good stuff?
