Dan is an enthusiastic and dedicated amateur baker and thinks he can be a fair judge of other nonprofessional and professional bakers. Although it's a competition, he thinks it's important for the event to be fun. He has an irreverrant (but not mean) style and a potty mouth (as seen on his twitter account). Examples of his baking can be found on Flickr. He participated in CupcakeCampDC 2010 last year as a baker and won 3rd place with his strawberry cupcakes.
