Outside of the office!

{Sing with us…} Dan, Dan the Fireman…if he can’t do it no one can!

Talented and ‘wise beyond his years’, Dan brings a fresh vision to the leadership team at Financial Voyages. We often think he is an old soul trapped in a young man’s body – his favorite movies are “Airplane!” and “My Cousin Vinny” and he’s dedicated to volunteerism serving as a Firefighter and senior leader for Perkiomen Township Fire Company.

Dan, a new father, said if he didn’t have to sleep, he’d use that time to exercise or spend time with his wife (Sarah) and daughter (Madeline). We’re surprised he didn’t say he’d spend time perfecting his go-to Karaoke song of “Rapper’s Delight.” He must be pretty confident in his performance skills.

Dan has a finely-tuned sense of humor and a warm personality – which is rare in an industry focused on numbers. His favorite holiday is Fourth of July (‘Merica!!).  Anyone who is lucky enough to know Dan, immediately sees how intelligent and loyal he is which are words often used to describe dogs. Strangely enough, dogs happen to be Dan’s preference in the age old “dogs vs cats” debate.
