Dan joined 5NINES in 2004 and has been in the technology field for over 10 years. He's Microsoft certified as a MCITP Server Administrator, Enterprise Administrator, and Enterprise Messaging Administrator. He prides himself on his persistence to deal with issues day after day while maintaining patience for both client and computer. "Just once I’d like to see what it’d be like to throw a server out of a 3 story window. I bet this is why data centers are built at ground level." Dan's travels have taken him to Stoughton for Syttende Mai and Maui, Hawaii. "Maui on a winter day is like a muggy Wisconsin afternoon in the summer." When he's not at his computer, Dan enjoys biking Wisconsin trails, grilling out, and catching a nap if possible.
