Born in Dakota (he is not into North and South) and raised in the corn and bean fields, Dan moved to Salida in 2009. His love for radio began in 2003 when he competed in the design for the 911 Memorial at Ground Zero in NYC. It was after that experience that he became deeply interested in alternative thinking and questioning of the establishment. This questioning of the status quo spawned his Gonzo radio show, Green Eggs and Dan. Dan currently practices reflexology here in Salida.
