Founder / Owner / Office Boy

After 20 years of leading GSHS, Dan is largely retired (he still does special projects and international sales) to pursue his other passions--sailing (boat in Fiji), visiting his grown daughters (Shanghai and Bellingham, WA), mountain climbing (Aconcagua is lingering on his radar), relishing food and wine with his friends far and near, catching up on his reading ("a 3 year prison sentence might do the trick though the food may not be what I'd prefer…") and seeking charities to give time to. It's been a glorious ride and Dan gives thanks to Cole's staff, both past and present, our customers, vendors, and supporters (financially and emotionally) for making his life and this company such a success and valuable pleasure.
