About the Film
A film about love, sexuality, and the human bond within the disabled community. A journey into the lives of 17 very unique people; some with disabilities and the partners who love them, others struggling to get by in a world that seems to often overlook them. In exploring the confidence and unconditional love that these humans have for themselves and each other, you may begin to question your own notions on life, love, and what it means to really feel in every sense of the word.

Dan is the Executive Producer of "Take a Look At This Heart." His sister was born with Cerebral Palsy and severely limited motor function; she was in a wheelchair her entire life, until she ultimately passed at the age of 23.

He defines himself as a compassionate realist, and believes that empathy is the true equalizer.
