  • Dan has run a restaurant review blog, "Dan vs. Food," where he's tried popular restaurants across the country.
  • Outside of writing and traveling, he loves trying out new recipes in his home kitchen to see what flavors he can bring together.
  • He won the 2010 Eastern Idaho State Fair cheesecake competition with a mint chocolate cheesecake.


Dan has always considered food, sports and travel to be his three biggest passions, which made sportswriting a natural career choice. He has always sought out well-known restaurants and hidden gems that tell the story of a location through its food and believes there's no better way to get to know a place. He has lived in eight different states, including Hawai'i, Florida, and three of the four "I" states.


He has a bachelor's of journalism from the University of Missouri.
