A quick learner and gifted with a versatile skillset, Dan has always been the go to guy to fill in the gaps in work that needs to be done. However, Dan’s interests have begun to shift from farming to construction and trade work, creating some distance from the family business and paving the way for his own path. Even with a little occupational separation, Dan still remains loyal to his family and continues to play his natural role of helping when he is needed.
