Dan, his wife and their two sons live in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan. On summer weekends, Dan and the boys often venture onto Lake St. Clair in their fishing boat in search of perch and walleye. If they land a few, Dan will be at the skillet in the evening preparing a fish fry with all the due diligence of preparing a tax return.
