Dane grew up in the San Francisco area where he grew to love skateboarding and snowboarding. He entered the UVA MSTP in 2017 and has loved the hiking, live music, breweries/wineries, and amazing food that Charlottesville has to offer. He lives here with his wife who is a pediatrics resident and their dog, Darwin, who is constantly exploring the boundaries of life. In the laboratory, you can find him analyzing mitochondrial outer and inner membrane morphology and discarding his latest failed native PAGE gel.
