Dan Baran got into audio dramas two years ago and was inspired to write and record as much as he could. He auditioned for FIRESIDE after enjoying the writing and the voice the team was creating. He wants/plans to learn as much as he can and then take the plunge into producing himself. He enjoys bike touring, cooking, writing, DnD, and video games. Generally nerdy stuff, but hey, that’s Dan.
