With God, a positive attitude and some luck, he turned his life of adversities into benefits that lasted him a lifetime. Dan’s entire career in the oil and gas industry was met with the ups and downs of the industry.

Since 1977, Dan has been corresponding and fighting for our America’s economic stability. Predicting our current energy crisis, he has been writing letters to Presidents and Congressmen in an effort to save America and its oil and gas industry.

Mirroring himself, his children set out on the road of life at an early age with a pioneering spirit that Dan could only liken to his own. Finally, an amateur philosopher, read miscellaneous articles that encompass Dan’s many thoughts and feelings in regard to this life.
