The Gatekeeper

After leaving the SEAL Teams, this hairy chested frogman spent two years doing high-risk government security details and then moved onto High Net Worth Family Protection Details. Dan has been a very successful business entrepreneur where he owned and operated 4-Elite Athlete training facilities and has helped NFL, MLB, Olympic and Special Operations Candidates achieve unmatched levels of success.

Since he’s been out of the Seal Teams,  he was able to mentor, train, and assist 32 Basic Underwater Demolition Seal Training(BUD/S) candidates into the Teams.  Dan also coaches high school football and as a coach for the Bellevue Wolverines he was part of a 67-0 staff that won 6-state back to back titles. Today, Dan continues to coach hand selected Pre-Special Operations Forces(SOF) candidates and selected NFL Athletes.  He coaches his sons’ football team as well as working on a Global Support Humanitarian Aid Team. Dan lives a life of anonymity but has allowed us an uncut look into his mindset, his ethos and the mindset that has helped him assist over 100 world class athletes achieve their dreams.
