Dan is blessed to have married his high school sweetheart Kristen. They will be celebrating their 5th anniversary as husband and wife this Fall.
Although raised in a Christian household, Dan started to really take ownership of his faith in his early twenties. Since that point he has not only grown exponentially in his faith, but also been one of the most dedicated volunteers here at CenterPoint. Currently, he serves on our elder board as well as in our AMP’d youth group program and on our AV team in Long Beach.
Dan is a full-time guidance counselor in the NYC public school system and holds a Master’s degree in Education from Queens College.
