About Dan

Growing up with French and Hungarian immigrant parents imbued me with an endless curiosity for the intersection of diet and culture. That passion has grown with countless trips to Nicaragua, Mexico, Peru, and Hungary where I have studied the varied approaches to diet, lifestyle and health.

Diversity has been my teacher, lessons have come from the impoverished developing world, the struggling working class, and the wealthy and well educated. These experiences, along with a deep passion for science, has shaped my philosophical approach to nutrition and health. When not immersed in the medical world I enjoy playing music and being active in the great outdoors.
