About Me. In Two Sentences:

I want everyone who I meet to know that I am genuinely interested in them and that I have helped them. My passion is to live out the calling and purposes for which God created me.

My Ambition. In One Sentence:

To lead and inspire the Desert Fuels team to fully engage in the mission and strategies of our company, thriving and blazing new trails in our industry. And to inspire our suppliers to make Desert Fuels their most preferred and trusted partner.

Three Questions:

Q1: Why do you love your job so much?
A: Every day is a new challenge. I love solving problems with new ideas, and the thrill of being part of a growing company that is truly revolutionizing the fuel industry.

Q2: What makes you tick?
A: I’m crazy about my awesome wife and two kids.

Q3: Outside of Desert Fuels, what else do you do?
A: I’m the Founding Pastor of Soul Rio Church in Rio Rancho, NM, and I’m an Albuquerque City Councilor


While better known for his versatility as an accomplished businessman, city councilor, community pastor, and recent candidate for the U.S. Congress, Dan is passionate about the fuel industry – and Desert Fuels in particular—bolstering our team in the spring of 2012 to great acclamation.

Inspired and inspiring, Dan enhances everything he works on, including our network of reliable fuel suppliers he’s helping grow nationwide. Honest, wise, and persistent, Dan is helping Desert Fuels revolutionize and simplify the way our industry does business. And he’s great fun to work with too (except in battle at our break room ping-pong table.)
