Read Dan's Interpreter's Notes.
Dan began his tenure with Delaware State Parks at Fort Delaware State Park, serving in different capacities for eleven years. He first served as a volunteer for one season and then was hired as a Seasonal Historical Interpreter for the next two summers. After completing his degree in history at Pennsylvania State University, he got a job with a large retail operation. However, he continued to work as a volunteer for two more seasons at Fort Delaware. In August 2002, Dan briefly left Delaware for a full-time job as a Site Interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg. This move was short-lived, because only three months later he was offered and accepted a full-time position at Fort Delaware. Currently, Dan is the Historic Site Manager at Auburn Heights Preserve, Delaware State Parks' newest site. He has been working closely with the Friends of Auburn Heights Preserve to transition Auburn Heights from private property to state park property. He has also been receiving steam car driving lessons. Dan is a Certified Interpretive Guide and a Certified Interpretive Trainer by the National Association of Interpretation.
