During that time he served as a lending department Vice President at First Federal and later as the President/CEO and co-owner of Coldwell Banker Uptown Realty in Port Angeles.
The passion in Dan’s life has always been aviation. He obtained his private pilot certificate at 18 and then served in the US Air Force as a maintenance crew chief on the F-111 fighter both State side and in South East Asia.

Dan has logged time in 25 different aircraft types from the J-3 Cub to the R-44 to the Pilatus PC-12 and learns something new with every flight.
Back out of retirement Dan has been blessed with the opportunity to combine his real estate skill set with his love of aviation.
