Danan, co-founder of The Adventure Log, born and raised in Southern California his teenage years were spent at In-n-Out Burger, Starbucks, surfing, driving trails in the mountains, camping and dirt biking in the deserts of California.
As a young adult he graduated top of his class as a master Jaguar technician and got a job in sales having nothing at all to do with cars… Having moved to Florida, his outdoor activity moved to the water, because Florida is oppressively humid…
After a debilitating and life-changing accident in 2010 he decided to change his life and start doing the things he REALLY loved, which was adventures of any sort, traveling, camping and off highway shenanigans.
He married the woman of his dreams and they now have a beautiful daughter together and he now spends his time with his family and playing outdoors.
