Dan is from Denver, CO and is currently located in Littleton, CO. He holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Architecture. He specializes as an architectural consultant, illustrator and developer. He believes all students are unique and should have an educational environment where they can develop mentally, emotionally, and socially. Therefore, he creates an atmosphere where they can meet their full potential. Dan provides a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and take risks. They are able to make choices and let their curiosity direct their learning.
Dan says the best thing about teaching at RMCAD is the synergy of the campus, which is devoted wholly to the arts. The opportunity to experience student work across all programs is a strong influence on his personal growth as a teacher and designer. He’s happily married, a father of four boys, and blessed with a wonderful grandson and granddaughter.
