Dane was born and raised in the Land of Oz to a horseracing mother and small business owning father. After moving to Florida, he was working as the Head Trainer at a high end personal training facility and reading SCOTUS opinions “for fun” when he decided that maybe law school was for him. As a passionate student of liberty, he thought there was no better way to fight for what he believes in than on behalf of those whose liberty is arbitrarily infringed. Fortunately for Dane, his legal career has started right where he always hoped it would end up, here at IJ.
Dane earned a double B.S. from Friends University, in his hometown of Wichita, Kansas, and his J.D. from the Florida International University College of Law. He was the Editor-in-Chief of the FIU Law Review, President (and founder) of the Libertarian Law Student Association, President of the FIU Law Federal Bar Association, and a member of the appellate advocacy and trial teams. Along with working as a law clerk for a summer at IJ Florida, he also worked in private practice and interned for the Honorable Spencer D. Levine of Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeals.
