Towards the end of his career, Dan worked for Adobe Systems, Calpine, Visa, and HP in a variety of technology related positions. Dan retired early only to perform his most meaningful job, caregiver for his ailing parents. Shortly after that, a position with Darling Fischer as Ambassador was accepted and is fully enjoying that line of work for the past 3 ½ years.
