Mr. Dan has been teaching kids for 22 years.

He began teaching at both Hogle and Pocatello Zoos where he wrote and performed educational live animal and puppet shows. 

He studied Theatre with an emphasis in Directing at Southern Utah University. He then went on to become the youngest board member of Pocatello’s Westside Players Dinner Theatre where he produced, directed and acted for 5 years. 

The whole time he had a full time job as a Chef. “And boy was I tired.” 

After moving back home to Salt Lake City, Mr. Dan was contracted by YouTheatre to make the puppets for the 2018 production of James and the Giant Peach. He has been resident teacher for the YouTheatre After School and Summer Programs ever since and loves every minute of it.
