When Dan was twenty-one he took a step back from his professional sporting career to pursue acting. He established a YouTube account to post videos before he took serious steps to train as an actor. After auditioning and being accepted into an intensive workshop for actors operating in Los Angeles, Dan’s eyes were officially opened when he saw the skill and talent required in this art of performing. He returned to Australia and realized the opportunities were not as frequent in Australia for diversity representation. In May 2018, after his first few acting gigs in Australia (where he won an award for a film in Australia called “Night Shift” for the action designs and fight choreography), Dan made a hard decision and set off to Vancouver to study acting and pursue his career full force.
Dan is an actor and director, known for roles in Charmed (2019), The Fighter (2018) and Night Shift (2018).
Dan was born in Perth, Western Australia. Grew up in Melbourne, Victoria,
Australia. He now resides in Vancouver where he continues to train at New Image College under the direction of Award Winning actor Philip Granger (Ghost Wars, The Killing).
