Dan is a native of Central Indiana and has had a rather eclectic path to becoming an apologist. His parents owned and operated a Moving and Storage company for a number of years. He has worked as a full-time firefighter/paramedic, a logistics sales professional, and a part-time youth and young adult’s pastor. Additionally, Dan spent a number of years engaged in street evangelism and apologetics in the Indianapolis vicinity.

He is currently pursuing a M.A. in Philosophy from Holy Apostles College and Seminary and has a B.A. in Philosophy from American Public University. In addition to this, Dan studied at Trinity College of the Bible while pursuing a degree in Philosophy and Apologetics.
A married father of three, Dan enjoys watching and coaching youth hockey and soccer and playing an inordinate amount of chess (when time permits).


Even though I was raised in a Christian home, I spent many rebellious years attempting to run away from God. Deep down I had known the truth since I was a child but had really not given over my life fully.  Through a number of trials and tribulations the birth of my daughter provided me with a new found appreciation for my helplessness. Just like a new born baby, I was completely dependent upon God for everything but denying this at every turn. Looking at my helpless little girl lying in her crib helped me to understand the good news in a way that changed me from the inside out. I believe in that moment, God opened my eyes to the truth and brought me face to face with my utter need of a Savior that saves to the uttermost.
