Dan is a native Oregonian who grew up in Eugene and attended Oregon State University. Before becoming a therapist, Dan worked as an x-ray technologist in Greenville, North Carolina, and in the E.R. of an inner-city Philadelphia, Pennsylvania hospital. He advanced to become a radiation therapist because he enjoys the opportunity to build an on-going relationship with the patients.

Dan loves the interpersonal aspect of getting to know his patients, as well as operating the advanced machinery at OHSU.
