Dan was born and raised in St. Charles County. Dan had the opportunity to spend a lot of his childhood exploring every corner of Missouri and beyond, thanks to his father introducing him to his love of hunting and outdoors early on. During his teenage years, if he wasn’t practicing his competitive clay target shooting for the local trap team, he was off hunting whatever was in season, including whitetails, turkeys, waterfowl, squirrels, rabbits and doves.
His ambition and dedication to everything he sets his mind to are some of the reasons he was a nationally ranked bunker shooter by the age of sixteen and recruited by Lindenwood University for their collegiate Shotgun Sports Team. While attending Lindenwood, he studied business administration. Recently, he was inducted into their Athletic Hall of Fame.
Currently, Dan lives in Warren County with his duck hunting partner dog Buck, a chocolate lab. He spends his free time working on the family farm in Madison County, doing everything from habitat improvement to timber management.
Dan is licensed to do business across the state of Missouri and Illinois.
