Danny is New Zealand’s first Paralympian to compete in Para rowing at the Paralympic Games. He did so at London 2012 winning the B final in the Men’s single skulls race. Danny was previously worked in the forestry industry – he likened the hours of solitude cutting down trees to the solitude of single skull rowing. Danny now runs a farm in Tirau and loves taking on his mates in a game of wheelchair basketball or tennis.

Danny officially received his ‘numbered’ pin as part of The Celebration Project in Hamilton in June 2019.
