Dan is a US Navy veteran, and he’s an employee of Range Generation Next (RGNext), where he works in the Mission Operations Department. He has been on Kwajalein since December 2005, and it was his lifelong passion for WWII history in the Pacific that brought him here. Dan learned to dive shortly after arriving on Kwajalein, and he has logged over 1400 dives around the Pacific, mostly wreck diving. His passion for veteran’s causes, especially the search for MIA’s, led him to create the project to find the Kingfisher, which later became the Kwajalein MIA Project. Dan is very active in the Kwajalein community as well- he is the Post Commander for the local American Legion Post (June 2017-present). In addition, Dan was the president of the Kwajalein Scuba Club from December 2013 to June 2016. He is a PADI Divemaster, and his additional dive specialty certifications include Enriched Air Nitrox, Drysuit Diver, Underwater Photographer, and Self-Reliant Diver among other certifications. .
