Two ventures recognized in its time as innovative achievements.
A builder to the core, Danard moved on in 2004 to Vancouver, British Columbia to assist Fireswirl Technologies and it partners, build, develop and launch its full suite of online and mobile gaming technologies around the World. As the Vice President of Business Development Danard was the ideal candidate to establish this first-of-its-kind national representation in many foreign markets.
