Dan was born in Southern Africa and was a mischievous child who found sport as a positive outlet for his energy and creativity. He started out his career as a teacher but soon discovered that what really excited him was the personal development work with young people, helping them build the skills and confidence to reach their potential.
Since then Dan has worked with organisations which help young people reach their potential. These include the Red Cross, the Sea Cadets and the Prince’s Trust in a range of roles across operational delivery, policy work, strategic leadership and business development. Alongside, he has completed an MBA to support his work.
Dan’s a fanatical Springbok fan and retired(ish) social rugby player. When not crawling through the mud of a rugby field, he can be found crawling through the mud of a Tough Mudder, having completed 15 so far! He lives in Edinburgh with his wife and daughter.
