Dano was introduced to sport kites in the late 1990s, moved to Texas, and attended Zilker Park Kite Fest in Austin. Watching Tye and Troy at Zilker Park sparked what he calls an "addiction" with Quad line kites. Attending an AKA competition in Rockport in 2000 he fell in love with the community, its beaches, and the firm breezes, so he moved there two weeks later. He is an author, photographer, kite and windfeather maker. He is also a licensed Financial Advisor with one of the nation's leading Financial Services company.
Another hobby and passion since early teen years has been photography. Starting with a classic Kodak Hawkeye Brownie, he was given an ArgusC3 35mm, used numerous SLR as a sports photog, worked as a darkroom tech, and now has progressed to the digital age! He is sharing his journey in images and expressing his writing interest on Wordpress.
