Dan grew up in Terrell, Texas where he was introduced to tennis around age 12. He played all 4 years at Terrell High School, and won District and Regional Championships in his senior year.

He played for Fred Kniffen at Tyler Junior College where he really began to learn the game, especially doubles. (Side Note: Kniffen, one of the most honored coaches in Texas college tennis history, was the first inductee into the University of Texas at Tyler Athletics Department Hall of Fame).

After graduating from Texas A&M with a major in Physical Education and a minor in Biology, Dan received his Masters in Education from the University of North Texas. He was hired by Plano ISD as the tennis coach at Plano East Senior High, then a new school and also taught Biology. During his 27 years there, Dan coached several district and regional champions, state qualifiers, and eventually a State Champion.

Dan retired from public school teaching in 2010, and has taught full-time at High Point Tennis Center since 2012.

He currently works with several USTA, TCD, and Metro teams in the Plano area, and is also available for small group and private lessons.

When not instructing, Dan plays on several USTA teams at the 4.5 level. Outside of tennis, Dan enjoys " a good flea market, brew pub, and poker game--not necessarily in that order."
