Dan is a graduate of the Dalhousie University Commerce program. He has been fortunate to have had personal and professional opportunities that have taken him to New Zealand, Asia, through several European countries and to dozens of ports of call along the US Eastern Seaboard and into the Caribbean.
Dan’s experiences are varied, from working with two award-winning global seafood exporters, to serving as a sales associate in the region’s premier yacht shop and sail making company, and coordinating retail distribution for one of North America’s leading consumer products companies.
Growing up in St. Margaret’s Bay, numerous hours spent on the ocean have been foundational to Dan’s life and career. A former member of the Nova Scotia Sailing Team, Dan has competed at the national and international levels for several years, then served as a Sailing Coach for one of the province’s leading yacht clubs. In recent years, Dan has been an integral part of organized and successful yacht racing teams based out of Halifax.
Dan’s diverse background brings an added dimension to the Gateway Insurance team of like-minded and client-focused entrepreneurs. As an Area Manager for Gateway–Halifax South & Gateway–Halifax South Shore, assisting clients with their commercial and personal insurance needs, while also focusing on the marine sector, is what Dan loves to do.
