A Sneak Peak Inside Dan’s Role at CAKE:
On a day-to-day basis I am responsible for providing and implementing solutions for all product-related inquiries. In the tech world this also means fixing any immediately actionable items whilst monitoring the infrastructure. This can involve tasks such as adding, removing and re-configuring domains. I am also a part of the team who build all of the new CAKE client instances.

I love being able to use a wide range of skills in the workplace, and this is something that CAKE allows me to do on a daily basis whilst also learning new things.

His Favourite Activities Outside of CAKE:
Outside of CAKE, I spend my free time with my two children: Ryan and Poppy, they like to visit me at work quite a bit! In my spare time I work on house projects . Most importantly however, I really enjoy simple relaxation.
Just For Fun We Asked Dan: “If you hosted your own talk show, who would be your first guest and what three questions would you ask them?”
As I love riding my motorbike into work everyday I would definitely interview Valentino Rossi – who is one of the best motorcycle racers ever! I would ask him:
- What would you be doing if you were not a MotoGP rider today?
- When you were younger, what was your favourite bike?
- Out of all your winning races, which was your favourite Championship?
An Interesting Fact About Dan:
When I was younger, about 14 or 15, I came in first in an off-road endurance race! I always take part in track day racing and here is a picture of me in action!
