I currently live in Orlando, Florida, some 25 miles north of the Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and several other major tourist venues. Orlando is a very lovely town with great weather and short drive time access to both the east and west coasts of Florida. I very much enjoy 2-3 day trips to Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers , St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Pensacola and other key city areas as each area has unique benefits and sights. This is a great area to live in as it offers a lifestyle with virtually everything, indoors, outdoors, sports, culture, community, education, religious activities, fishing, cruising, spending the day at the beach…just a lot of activities that allow you to enjoy your life.
Even with the wide range of entertainment and pleasure available, I have a great deal of time to pursue my business options. You may wonder why I have such a passion for financial achievements. Essentially I am a teacher. My father was a school principal and my mother always the school secretary. My career occurred in four major segments, each being highly interesting and challenging to me. This page is essentially a resume that gives you details and facts…as you would give to any employer…however there is no way to understand my emotions, drive or passions from the information below….this is for history and credibility purposes only…thank you for understanding… and now for more of About Dan… The overview… Lived in…
