About Daniel

I live in Frisco, Colorado or otherwise known as “Main Street of the Rockies.”  I originally lived in New Hampshire where my passion for alpine sports began.  After watching Warren Miller and Greg Stump movies, I knew bigger mountains were in my future.

Career Background

I am an aspiring guide, currently going through the AMGA courses and exams.  I plan to work with Rocky Mountain Guides this winter.

Treatment Procedure and Recovery Plan

I had three procedures done in one shoulder operation.  The recovery time is 16 weeks and my rehabilitation plan was to stretch and now strengthen.  I had surgery in late May and will be 100% going into ski season this October!





"The foundation is amazing! My MRI, pre and post operation visits, the surgery, the rehab and even covering an ice machine-which was my best friend right after surgery-was all covered. I didn't see a single bill and everything was hassle free. Without the Kees Brenninkmeyer Foundation, I would not have a future in guiding. "
