After spending the first 23 years of his life in northern Minnesota, Danny moved to Arizona in 2005. He describes Tucson as a perfect climate both in weather and culture. His exact words are, “It is big enough where there is always something going on and small enough where there is not a big damn hurry and most things aren’t dirty and polluted”.
He further describes Tucson as a wealth of community and cultural events. Danny has worked in the human services and behavioral health industries for more than 18 years and is currently the Training Coordinator at one of southern Arizona’s largest non-profit organizations in behavioral healthcare and human services.
Danny joined the board in November of 2017 and serves on the Standard Operating Procedures committee and the Financial Working Group, responsible for drafting & enforcing board procedures and safeguards that ensure the security of community investments and organizational assets.
As someone who identifies with the LGBTQ+ community, Danny has always been an active supporter of Tucson Pride as well as other various support organizations. While Danny describes himself as a somewhat private person, he states that he is excited at this opportunity to serve the community.
