Dan started his film career at the age of 16 when he created his first "horror" film. It was a five minute slasher flick titled "Darkness". In senior high school he and some friends had a sketch comedy TV show on public access cable.

Since then Dan has directed several short films, music videos and TV pilots. Most recently he finished his first feature film "Darkest Hour" with his long time writing and producing partner John Knox. He is now in pre-production on his next feature film "Slow the Decay".
