Danny grew up in a large, loving family in the Philadelphia area. He attended a local college and entered the workforce only to find that he wasn't ready for the Monday-Friday routine yet. He left his job and spent the summer in a familiar beach town in Southern New Jersey. When the summer ended and the tourists left, he decided to spend the winter in Aspen, CO. "I'm going to 'find myself'." is how he explained this move to his Mom.
