Daniel McKelvey is an entrepreneur and innovator with passions for education, technology, and exploring the world around him.
While growing up, Daniel McKelvey received great support and encouragement from his parents about being active through sports and activities and remaining focused on his education. His father worked in educational technology and inspired him to take his learning to the next level. He has always had a strong work ethic and thirst for knowledge which he believes he got from his parents.
With this mentality, he quickly developed a passion for entrepreneurship. In junior high school, he started a landscaping business with a friend which they kept up and running successfully for six years. They then went on to sell the business to another landscaper during the senior year of high school as they prepared to head off to college. While in college, Daniel McKelvey continued to find more ways to develop entrepreneurial opportunities and ways to put away some extra money for school. A few times a week, he would work as a DJ running shows with music and on-air interviews that allowed him to have great interactions with other college students as well as the local community. Additionally, he spent time as a math tutor and referee for water polo, finding opportunities to work while doing the things he loved.
Daniel McKelvey continued this trend establishing a career in educational technology, following in the footsteps of his father while challenging himself to continue expanding his knowledge and learning experiences.

Outside of his career passions, Daniel McKelvey is an avid sports fan and outdoorsman. His family has always held sports in high regard, emphasizing the importance of experiences and creating long lasting memories instead of focusing too much on materialistic items.
