Speaker Bio

Dan is a passionate snowboarder, splitboarder, mountain biker, climber, and a poor but enthusiastic surfer. But most of his adult life has been spent as a whitewater kayaker & athlete.

He has paddled some of the remotest and hardest rivers across Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia over the last 25 years, with kayaking defining his love of the environment and his desire to protect it.

Dan has spent the last decade as an environmental ambassador for several outdoor brands and been involved in the creation of 2 environmental NGOs. His activism has focused on engaging the outdoor community in the preservation of our last wild places, be they in the heart of the Himalayas or behind the local village.
