Dan was born in 1987 in Cheltenham, England. He started to learn poker at the age of 16, just before the poker boom, by watching his Step-Father play online. It wasn't long before Dan was addicted to the game, and he was only 18 when he turned professional.
Playing most of his poker online he decided to give live a shot. With an impressive record from the get go it didn't take long for Matt Dale (MD of poker.co.uk) to notice his abilities. It was Jan 05 at the age of 18 that Dan became a fully sponsored pro of poker.co.uk.
With career earnings already totalling over ?250,000, Dan's sucesses have continued with cashes all over the globe; including The Caribbean, Spain and Germany. His best live cash to date was taking runner-up in the 2007 World heads up in Barcelona for ?60,000. His best online cash came when chopping the PokerStars $500,000 guaranteed event for over $100,000.
Dan's other interests include Golf and travelling. At 16 he wanted to be a professional golf coach, he worked hard at first but poker interveened and he has no regrets.
