Dan Mickelson began working in the construction industry at age 15 in a small cabinetry shop in Heber City, Utah. Since then he has been driven by a desire to build. Working as a framing contractor in his 20s, building primarily large homes, Dan learned a lot about running a business and the value of hard work. In 2006 Dan went to work for Layton Construction as a project superintendent and eventually became a Senior Project Manager managing projects from $5M to $20M in value. In 2016 Dan had an opportunity to move into the land development arena as a Senior Project Manager for Daybreak in South Jordan, Utah.
