Dan Sullivan was banned from the internet the first time he used it via telnet from Indiana State University. He has learned a lot since then and now reads through all of those usage agreements so that he won’t be banned again. After teaching software for a few years, Dan went on to be a programmer and help desk operator at a large local bank. From there he jumped over to technology and ministry as the Technical Director at Crossroads Christian Church where he made a full-color, weekly bulletin/zine, ministry website, and directed the 3 camera live IMAG.
He then went and designed websites in Persia (because telecommuting wasn’t exciting enough). He came back to do marketing for an Internet Service Provider and pastor homeless men at the Evansville Rescue Mission. Dan now fulfills his lifelong dreams of being a butler by taking constant care of WordPress hosting clients and making websites. He also works on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and has more plants on his desk than anyone else in the company. In his spare time, he enjoys the hobbies of his five kids, eats everything his wife bakes, and has long talks with his neighbors.
