Dan is enjoying a successful career in the petroleum industry. He has also been one of my best friends ever since we were roommates in university. How long ago was that? Well, it was the year that Raiders of the Lost Ark hit the theatres, Blondie was big on the radio, Trudeau was still Prime Minister, IBM launched its first PC, Lady Di married Prince Charles, and oh God this is depressing. Anyway, many thanks for entrusting me with this portrait commission, Dan!
