Originally from Northern Virginia, Danny relocated to the Hampton Roads area in 2008 initially to play college basketball. After a brief stint at Virginia Wesleyan University, he made a decision to transfer in order to prioritize academic opportunities. Danny is a recent graduate of Old Dominion University, where he obtained both his BS and MS in Exercise Science. As part of his Graduate program, Danny conducted a research study on velocity-based training as a preferred periodization protocol within athletic populations.
Although his initial career plan was to pursue a position in a collegiate or professional athletic realm, a serendipitous turn led him to Virginia High Performance (Virginia Beach, VA) in 2016. Danny has been with VHP for three years now, where he currently serves as head strength and conditioning coach working predominantly with U.S. Special Operations Command personnel and tactical athletes. Danny has taken the transition in stride and has been overjoyed with the direction of his current professional path.
Collectively, Danny has over 8 years of experience as a personal trainer and strength & conditioning coach, and along the way has earned multiple nationally accredited certifications including CSCS,D*, TSAC-F,D*, and USAW. Throughout his professional tenure, Danny has experience working with high school and collegiate athletes, United States Special Forces personnel and tactical athletes, general population, weight loss individuals, and adaptive athletes.
