Born and raised in the Midwest, the son of a wheat farmer, Dan was a fine arts major at the University of Missouri—Kansas City. After moving to New York he met, fell in love with, and married his soul mate and best friend, Barbara. Dan joined Axis in 2002 after several years with Citibank where he was VP of National Sponsorship and Event Marketing. He loves the client contact and project creativity that is an integral part of being an account manager at Axis. Outside the office, Dan is a fine arts photographer who has shown his work in galleries around the city, and is establishing himself as a Lifestyle Portrait and Event Photographer.
