Dan joined ECF because he is passionate about the importance of education on student’s lives. “There are so many high-talent kids that have the potential for so much but unfortunately due to both finances and mentorship, they don’t have access to the right education. This means the kids miss out on their full potential. ECF brings the marriage of mentorship and education, to those that deserve it, in order to change lives.”
Dan and his fiancé, Kori Ow, will be married in 2020. He is an avid golfer and soccer player.
