Dan is the founder of dDW Studios. He’s been an avid gamer, and programmer for most of his life, starting with the ATTARI 2600 he played as a teenager. From that point he was hooked. He started programming small games on the Commadore VIC-20, continued with the Commadore 64, and eventually the Commadore 128. He did much of this while serving active duty for 4 years as a member of the 101st Airbourne. It wasn’t until the early ’90s, when he got back from overseas, that he bought his first PC. Since then he has taken many courses, learned quite a few programming languages, and used that knowledge to mod games like Ultima Online, Battlefield 2, Arma, and Neverwinter Nights. He has also remained active online, often participating in alpha and beta testing for any games he can. Some of his aliases he has used and is still using are ddiablo67, soldierfortune, and daddydeath.
As a member of the dDWS team, Dan will first and foremost be our lead programmer. He has spent more than a quarter of a century programming, so he’s probably the best man for the job. He will also be handling a portion of the 3d modeling, as he’s pretty good at that too, and moderating the forums (because he loves wielding the ban hammer).
