I first met Dan in late 2004/early 2005, he was keen to get involved in developing HF and moving us forward.
One of the first things which struck me is how amazingly perceptive he was. We didn't know each other well, we'd had a few phone conversations, yet he was able to deduce things about me that I've never discussed with other people.
Then was his passion and drive, he was always looking at the bigger picture and encouraging me to move forward.
The biggest shock came when I discovered he'd have been 16 or 17 at the time, truly a man wiser than his years.
Sadly I feel he didn't make the best use of his talents; I believe I can say that because I'd say the same about myself.
But I almost always enjoyed talking to Dan, his enthusiasm was electric and I don't think I've met many technical people who have been as gifted or clever as he was.
RIP Dan x
