My name is Dan.

To keep it short I’m:

  • a follower of Jesus
  • married
  • the dad of two crazy kids
  • an artist
  • a tattoo enthusiast
  • and probably a little more

My views & opinions are my own. But I’m well aware they are nothing new. The things you’ll read here will inevitably restate thoughts others have had in recent years & probably throughout history. These statements, stories, & observations will simply be told through my particular lens. My hope is that they help you process your thoughts and feelings on the topics I write about.

You may find yourself wondering why this blog is titled The Quiet Lion. It’s a fair question.

The only response I can give is this:

I’ve always been fascinated by lions. They’re bold, fierce & powerful. The roar of a lion can be heard up to 5 miles away.

At the same time, the best leaders & wisest people I have known & worked with are always men & women who are quick to listen & slow to speak. Extroverts & introverts alike, these are people who understand that leadership & wisdom are not about being heard, but are about understanding, processing & growing.

So there you have it, The Quiet Lion is an ode to the people who have been the biggest influencers & mentors (whether they know it or not).
