Born in a small town in Quebec, Dan was the son of a musical father and it wasn’t long before he became a musician himself. Having played in many bands throughout his life, that crippling fear that most of us have for public speaking, was second nature for him.
After working with different cruise lines and traveling the world with his wife and singer Sherrie, Dan decided that the next move in his musical lifestyle would be in Radio.
With his extensive knowledge of music, musical equipment and his comfort with public speaking, Dan soon became a welcome and valued addition to the world of Radio.
Currently working with CHHR 94.7 Sheet Harbour Radio as one of the creative team members,Dan’s goals to make Sheet Harbour Radio a community staple in every day life.
