Meet Dan

I was born in Chicago before my family moved to the east coast and settled in New Jersey. By God’s grace, my parents trusted Christ when I was young. As a result, I grew up in a household and attending churches where the gospel was clearly preached. What started as head knowledge began to sink into my heart as I grew older and I realized that nothing I could do would ever be good enough to bridge the gap between myself, a sinner, and a holy God. I surrendered my life to Christ and was baptized as a freshman in high school.

I went on to attend the University of Illinois where God placed faithful men around me who continually pointed me back to Jesus and helped me grow in my love for God and others. While there, I also met my beautiful bride Amy, a Texan, who eventually brought me here to Dallas when we married in 2007. We began attending Watermark shortly thereafter and now reside in Plano with our four kids – Maggie, Grayson, Paxton and Landon.

I spent almost fifteen years working in the commercial real estate industry. When the opportunity arose to come on staff at Watermark it seemed like a natural next step in the work God was already doing in my life. I love meeting men and women who are new to Watermark, hearing about how God’s grace has transformed their lives and helping them connect with others here!
