Dan Steele

Team Coordinator | Southern California

Dan is a writer, so we'll let him speak for himself: "I'm from Texas where "swimming holes" are used more for cooling off than competitive races. But pool life in southern California has been a pleasant change of pace. And while I may never have participated in a 400 meter medley, you can find me freestyling in the Pacific in Playa del Rey on my weekends."
