Dan brings over 15 years of Sports & Entertainment industry experience to the BSD team.  Dan started his professional journey during college, as a summer intern in pro basketball with the NBA's Miami HEAT & AmericanAirlines Arena. Upon graduation, Dan was asked to join the team full-time and rose within the organization spending over a decade handling all sides of Basketball & Arena Concert-related brand partnerships: Sales, Activation, Contracts, Incremental Renewals, Inventory Management & more.  


With 2 NBA Championship seasons and 12 years in Miami - Dan chose to pursue a new path in adventure sports, blending his passion for the outdoors with corporate partnership success.  In 2019, Dan worked with Pepsi & Mountain Dew directing all partnership sales & new business acquisition for Pepsi's Olympic-qualifying Ski, Snowboard & Skateboard competition series: Dew Tour.  


After numerous successful partnerships & events, the explosion of surf parks around the world became an opportunity too exciting to ignore. Dan joined the Beach Street team in 2023 to lead all partnership sales & fulfillment - becoming one of the first in the industry to bring the Sports & Entertainment model of strategic venue partnerships, to the world of surf park developments.   


Currently, Dan is focused on building Beach Street's roster of new founding partners, creating engaging programs that are win-win relationships for the brands involved and every Beach Street Development guest.

Dan lives in Encinitas, CA with his wife and daughter, where they spend most of their time hiking, skiing, traveling... and SURFING!
