During the summer of 2004 Daniel joined the Shepherd’s Fold team as a counselor and fell in love with the place. He returned every summer, eventually moving out there upon graduation from Oral Roberts University to fill the role of Camp Director. With a degree in public relations and advertising from ORU, Daniel comes to the Ranch with great experience in outside sales and youth ministry. After leaving the Ranch in 2009 he worked as the senior high youth pastor at First United Methodist before developing his sales acumen with Yellowbook and LivingSocial. He has a passion for people to discover their God given destiny and loves the ministry of Shepherd’s Fold Ranch.
Daniel is married to the incredible Whitney whom he met at camp so many years ago. Whitney works as a nurse in the PEC at St. Francis hospital and spent her summers at camp from when she was a child until 2009. They celebrated their second anniversary in January of 2012, have three dogs named Hector, Laneli, and Francee, and most recently bought their first house in Tulsa. Together they share a heart for kingdom living and inviting others to discover their place in the body of Christ. They enjoy leading summer camps for the Vulnerable Children in South Africa and hope to go back each year.
