Dan is a product architect, UX researcher, full-stack software engineer, code-wrangler, and full-time problem-solver.  He has software engineering experience that ranges from small startups to large enterprise organizations. Before his goHappy days, Dan was a Staff Engineer at Snagajob where he also dedicated extra time and efforts to assist with the company’s culture squad.

You can find Dan at the intersection of business, product, and technology.  Dan is known by current and past colleagues for his “creative interplay, thoughtful experimentation, and deep learning.”  He is passionate about user-centered design principles and thus puts the end user first in all conversations, situations, and development.  Dan loves finding the path amongst the weeds and challenging thought processes.

goHappy fuels his passion for making the world a better place by building quality work culture through caring conversations. 

Dan hikes and bikes the seven hills of RVA with his awesome wife and savors the exotic cocktails Shawn serves up (see above).  He is also our resident disc jockey. Is disc jockey still a relevant term? Kids these days, you never know. Learn more about Dan on Linkedin.
