Building a better community through active engagement
For ten years, Dan has worked at the largest applied research and development organization in the city, Southwest Research Institute, whose mission is applying technology to benefit government, industry, and all of humanity. In this role, his focus has been designing and implementing innovative technology that supports transportation for state and local governments. This professional experience equips Dan to understand complex infrastructure challenges, to develop robust and beneficial solutions, and to communicate with a wide variety of audiences locally and nationally.
Additionally, for the past four years, Dan has served as President of the Thunderbird Hills Neighborhood Association, one of the largest neighborhoods in San Antonio with a sprawling and complex constituency spanning multiple council districts. As President, Dan facilitated successful negotiations between developers looking to do business in the neighborhood and residents wanting to avoid being adjacent to the development. The end result for these negotiations ensured developers were able to do business, residents had their concerns mitigated, and in one instance the broader neighborhood got a new 10-acre park out of the deal.
