Dan and his partner Steve joined The Diana Foundation over three years ago after moving to Houston and attending a number of events.  “Our first night in Houston included a Diana social event at our friend’s home where we were staying,” shared Dan.  
Dan and Steve appreciate the commitment that the Diana’s have to the community and the role they have played in the Houston community especially during the early phases of the AIDS crisis.  The friendships that they have made are a great testament to the caliber of men and women in The Diana Foundation. “I am honored and humbled to serve as the 17th President of The Diana Foundation and I am looking forward to continued success and fun times by and with our members.”
