An educator at heart, Dan ﬁnds great joy in helping others explore and connect with the world around them. He has taught marine sciences in the Florida Keys and on Catalina Island, science and math in international schools in Mexico, Costa Rica, and the South Paciﬁc, and swimming and water safety in Alaska.
Dan grew up in Pennsylvania and attended Penn State where he earned a degree in science education. He has always sought out fulﬁlling work, in beautiful locations, surrounded by wonderful people. Connection with the environment has been a constant theme in his work and travels.
At present, Dan has returned to his roots in Central Pennsylvania where he and his wife have settled and spend their time in the great outdoors. While on board with Lindblad-National Geographic he can be found engaging folks in the natural world; and is always on the lookout to provide enlightenment for naysayers of the green ﬂash.
