Dan is very excited to be a third year in Virginia Mock Trial. As Treasurer, Dan is astounded that the rest of the program made the incredibly ill-advised choice to put him in charge of the money. He plans to buy a go-kart.

Dan is actually from Kentucky but he always introduces himself as being from "the Cincinnati area" so that he can avoid questions about fried chicken, horse racing, and whether or not he ever wore shoes.

It was recommended that Dan write something about how he occupies his time when he’s not doing school or Mock Trial. Dan responded, “I don’t understand the question.”

Dan is very excited for another successful year with VaMT and at UVA.
