Dan Eckelkamp
Dan is a native Texan and grew up in Plano.  He started skiing 7 years ago and fell in love with the sport and tries to get in as many days as he can on the slopes each season.  Dan worked in Telecom for several years but decided to follow his passion of home renovation and furniture building which led him to return to graduate school and start his career in architecture and design. He earned a Master of Architecture degree from The University of Texas at Arlington and worked on many high profile projects for several Dallas-based firms that specialized in residential and commercial buildings and hospitality interiors.  He now runs Eckxstudio, his own architecture firm which embraces modern and contemporary architecture.  He is a licensed Architect, a LEED Accredited Professional and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Record Boards.     

Dan and his wife Angie live in Dallas and besides skiing, enjoy cycling, cooking, traveling and the arts.
