Dan was brough on board to do the music for Airwolf S4 and also re-did the theme song composed by Sylvester Levay when the show was cancelled by CBS. The USA Network picked up the series for half the budget the original series had and didn't feature the original cast since the production was moved to Canada.
Dan started his music career at the age of 6 taking piano lessons. At the age of 13 he started his own group, "The Visions" in Minneapolis. By the time he was 17, "The Visions" were a band in the Twin Cities playing all venues available. After two years of college majoring in music and art, Dan moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music career without his fellow band members. Within six months, he once again formed a band; this one named "Pony". Gathering together 3 other members with the love for The Beatles, Dan created a group which started to gather a good following in the LA area. At the age of 21, Dan's group was signed to the famous William Morris Agency and one month later signed to 20th Century Records.
After 2 years on the label, he became disenchanted with the producers of their first two albums and left that label and signed with Warner / Chappel roster as a composer.
