Dan has been with the Highlanders since 2013 and was a student under fellow Highlander Joe Schreiber. Dan's inspiration to take up piping was his father who was a member of the Billy Mitchell Scottish Pipe Band in Milwaukee when Dan was a kid. Dan took a few lessons back then but it didn't stick. Professionally, Dan works in IT and also enjoys helping Senior Citizens be a little less anxious with technology. In his spare time, Dan enjoys real beer without all the trendy flavors and too much hops, and is a bit of an Audiophile. Dan has also been known to use his Photoshop skills to put friends into some places they'd never expect!
