Dan started drifting in 2007 with USD on the east coast. He quickly got attached to the sport and was especially determined to make a splash with his turbo-charged Mazda Miata. After receiving his first FD License back in 2009, a decision was made to graduate into a 240SX. Again in 2012, he competed in SWD ProAm and finished 2nd overall in the series, thus acquiring license for 2nd time. For 2013 extreme focus was put on USD Pro Am to have a serious program and use the knowledge towards a more long term goal and once again for the 3rd time Dan received his license and is now driving a Mazda RX-8 and will break ground here in his inaugural season of Formula DRIFT.
