Having spent 33 years as a game warden for Texas Parks and Wildlife, Danny has had the opportunity to serve Texans. Conservation of our natural resources has been his focus both professionally and personally. He and his wife Elaine have raised four daughters and one son.
Danny had the privilege throughout his career to hold many positions within the Law Enforcement division. He began his career in 1986 as a field game warden in Port Isabel and completed the final leg as Lieutenant Colonel (Director of Field Operations). Along the way he held the positions of lieutenant, captain and major. Danny spent five years as the director of training at the Game Warden Training Center.
He has invested the last decade of his career involved in conservation issues at the state and national level. He helped create a National Leadership Academy for conservation law enforcement professionals, held annually in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The curriculum that was developed challenges students to face the realities of resource management, exploitation of our natural resources and building impactful relationships with all our stakeholders.
Danny wants to become a catalyst for engaging Texans to intentionally help game wardens stop those individuals and groups who are stealing our resources. He believes that each and every species is irreplaceable and exists for our spirit and harmony of our world.
