Dan is one of those rare people who always knew exactly what he wanted to do: become a master goldsmith. As a young boy, he had a penchant for skipping school so that he could flatten pennies on the railroad tracks of Wyoming. His attendance was better in high school, where he could take welding for credit -- and he became the state welding champion. When Dan finished high school, he hopped on a bus to Portland, where he knew he could find an apprenticeship with a jeweler, and he never looked back.
Now 48, Dan is a master goldsmith and gemsetter and has been working with metals and gems for over 30 years. It is difficult to pull Dan away from his bench -- it's where he's happiest... and his idea of the perfect vacation? Digging for diamonds in Arkansas!
