Danny’s passion for the wilderness was ignited at an early age, wandering the undeveloped hill country of Austin, Texas. He had his first foray into the mountains of Colorado as a boy with his father and brother. The connection he felt during this time in the wilderness as a youth became his life calling; he is dedicated to facilitating these experiences for youth, adults, and families. Danny is a founder and co-owner of Open Sky.

During his free time, Danny spends time with his wife hiking in the canyon country of the southwest, backcountry skiing in the San Juans, and mountain biking the world renowned trails in Durango.
