Early Life and Education
Daniel was born in Miles City, Montana and attended Assumption Abbey High School in Richardton, North Dakota for his secondary education. From there he went to the University of Minnesota before attending law school at Michigan where he passed the bar exam to begin his legal career specializing in Real Estate Business Law – becoming one of Boston’s premier attorneys.

He and Katherine have shown tremendous commitment to their community by giving of both time and money, including Leadership Corpus Christi, Domino’s Partners Foundation, YWCA of Corpus Christi Beach Clean-up activities and many more volunteer initiatives.
Dan is an author who has had his short story published in The New Yorker. He enjoys sipping good coffee and collecting designer wallets; but avoids wearing formal wear like tuxedos as much as possible and prefers jeans and T-shirts instead.
In Belles de Jour, he learns of Blair and Louis’ engagement, attempts to prevent its publication but ultimately fails. After consulting an old mentor who advises against this move, he decides that just let it come out.
Later, he assists Chuck in finding ways to feel again, while simultaneously catching Georgina blackmailing him for a paternity test. After some hesitation on her part, she eventually gives up and provides him with results: It turns out he is indeed fathering Georgina’s child (The Jewel of Denial), something which Rufus and Lily didn’t find out until their wedding day!
Achievement and Honors
Dan has long been recognized for his dedication and steadfast commitment to Albany County residents. American City & County magazine named him County Leader of the Year while Association of United States Army 1st Region gave him its Mary G. Roebling Distinguished Service Award for his efforts.
At County Executive level, he was also the inaugural County Executive to become a Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellow, joining Governors, Attorney Generals and Congressmen to learn about addressing inequities in education and life outcomes. Furthermore, he received the inaugural NPTC Daniel P. Smith Lifetime Achievement Award for Private Fleet Professionals.
He and Katherine were active participants in Corpus Christi community organizations such as Leadership Corpus Christi, Women’s Shelter of South Texas and Domino’s Partners Foundation. Both enjoyed sport – especially sporting clays and wing shooting.
Once they arrived in Corpus Christi, Daniel and Katherine immersed themselves into their new community with gusto.

His firm serves as an intermediary between chefs and potential investors who wish to reap the benefits of backing a restaurant, such as dining credits, comped dishes, VIP tables and party invitations. They have already raised at least $1.6 million – enough for two restaurants – while an increase in funding up to $3 million could fund four restaurants.
