When I was a kid my mother overpaid for scalped tickets for the King Tut Exhibit. I was still captivated when, years later, I again saw the exhibit in Cairo.

His passion for technology and gadgets never left him. Dan is married to Raina Goldberg who is also an avid user of Apple products. They live in New Jersey with their golden doodle Nava.
