Daniel has been with Bear Creek for the last two years broadening his horizons in the landscape design / build industry. He came from a four-year hiatus running the wholesale department of a local apparel company where he learned the book end details of operating a business. BCL provided him an opportunity to get his hands back in the soil and he has taken off running!
Daniel was born and raised in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri where his background in the landscape industry began pulling weeds in his fathers’ yard to get those Saturday morning pancakes! After all the weeds were pulled, he expanded his knowledge at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey earning his B.A. in Environmental Planning and Design with a minor in Turfgrass Management. He has run his own successful business and upon arrival in WA; 2010 he expanded his plant knowledge at Wells Medina Nursery while continuing to pull the weeds in his own residence.
Most weekends you can find Daniel in the mountains hiking if he is not swimming, biking, or running while training for his next half Ironman. You may also notice his new four-legged sidekick Porter; a mutt-mix he adopted from a Louisiana shelter in November of 2020.
