Dan started writing at the age of 14 during November 2003 as he watched his mother writing freelance on the household's lone computer. He'd grow into ghost writing under her name, and finally stepped forward as a freelance writer in mid-2004.
His knowledge of sports is wide spread but stems from NHL hockey and NASCAR racing. He is friends with the Boston Bruins' center Marc Savard, former CHL player of the year with the Oshawa Generals and keeps track of other Oshawa alumni such as Florida's Nathan Horton and Bryan Allen, Nashville's Jason Arnott, and Philly's Ben Eager.
As far as favourite teams are concerned, he likes the Mets in MLB baseball, Chargers and Saints in NFL football, Ottawa Senators in NHL hockey and both Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin in the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Marcos Ambrose is a Nationwide Series favourite, but Dan and his grandfather were robbed by Robby Gordon for $149 at the Montreal race with the tour bus lottery.
He has always strongly disliked Robby Gordon.

I hope you've been enjoying the new and improved Bleacher Report—we're really happy with the feedback we've received so far.
Just thought I'd let you know that next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements, and thus it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Dan!
