     Dan has a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, where he was award the “Robert Howe Fletcher Cup” as an acknowledgement of his outstanding achievement. 
     He has shown extensively over the past couple decades and is currently represented by Riversea Gallery, In Astoria, Oregon.
     His works include a solo exhibition at the James Hormel Center in the San Francisco Main Public Library and a collaborative installation at Works Gallery in San Jose, CA.  He was curator of “Life after Death: Embracing the Queer Widow” for the 2001 National Queer Arts Festival.  Dan was also a featured artist for a Visual Aid presentation at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.   And he spent two summers as an artist in residence at “L’experience” in Plaisance, France.
      In the past couple years he has had several solo exhibitions, “His Story” at Basic Space Gallery, Portland Oregon, “Dear Friends: A Visual Memoir” at the Firehouse Galley in Grants Pass, Oregon, “Reincarations” at the Mark Woolley Gallery in Portland, Oregon, “Sticks and Stones” at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon and “A Bundle Of Sticks”, at The Denizen Gallery at MilePost 5 in Portland, Oregon and he was featured in Judy O’Shea’s “Water Paper Stone: A Walk Through Book” at the San Francisco Center for the Book, [...]
