Australian by birth, Daniel has made North Carolina his home since 1991 and shares his love of North Carolina with wife Christine, originally from Montana. They enjoy riding their Harley, with Daniel up front and Christine on the back, and RV camping throughout the United States. These two passions allow them to enjoy the best of what North America has to offer, but North Carolina is where their three grown children and grandchildren reside, so it will always be home to them.
Daniel is active in the community through the Apex Chamber of Commerce as Past President; Past Chair of the Chamber Ambassador’s Club; and Past President of Apex Rotary. Additionally, Daniel and Christine are involved in charities that help others and ‘give back’ to the community. The charity they are most active with is American Black & Tan Coon Hound Rescue (coonhoundrescue.com), where they help transport, foster and adopt rescued hounds in the region.
