After completing a Law degree, Dan went on to become a Graduate Bank Manager. Dan realised that life behind a desk wasn’t for him, so he joined the North Yorkshire Fire And Rescue Service and served for nearly 10 years. He used his spare time to write scripts and appeared in a short film by Myles Radcliffe. He travelled for a while and performed stand up comedy in New Zealand. He returned to the UK (Northern Ireland) and began presenting radio shows on BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) covering Northern Ireland and occasionally worldwide. It was while living in Northern Ireland that he created the Dan Life Coach podcast, a comedy broadcast discussing and “solving” listeners problems. Dan Life Coach was listed in the UK iTunes “New and Noteworthy” section on its release. Dan has a high quality studio set up and began providing voice overs to many other clients, primarily as the voice of Premier Sports (Setanta Sports 1 in Ireland). Dan mentored young people through BNL Productions in Northern Ireland for three consecutive years. In 2012, he moved to Dublin to concentrate on acting and his voice over business. Dan's first passion is acting, he is patient and adaptable on set, taking direction very well.
