Danny received his bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Presbyterian College and both a Masters Degree and Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from Georgia College and State University. After two years of playing professional basketball in Europe, Danny started his career in education as a teacher and coach at Brentwood School in Sandersville, GA. He continued serving as a teacher and coach in Georgia independent schools before taking on administrative responsibilities at Stratford Academy as Business Manager and Covenant Academy as Headmaster.

Danny's background and skills closely match the qualities desired at Summit Charter School. His visionary leadership, extensive academic and coaching experience, approachable and engaging demeanor, and financial and fundraising acumen were a perfect fit for Summit.

Danny and his wife, Stacy, have three children Silas, Peyton, and Daniel. They started visiting the area over a decade ago and fell in love with Cashiers and wanted to make it their permanent home.
