A native of Leitchfield, Dan Boone grew up in Louisville and attended public schools in Jefferson County. He began playing guitar at age 11, which he says “led to a lifetime of musical journeys with lots of people in various configurations.” After high school, Dan earned his Associate’s degree in electronics and worked for several years in electronic and computer repair.
In the mid-1980’s, Dan became interested in alternative health and began taking classes in yoga and tae kwon do. These new interests led to a career change. In 1991, Dan enrolled in the University of Louisville to pursue a degree in Physical Therapy. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1997 and is currently employed as a Physical Therapist.
After Dan became interested in photography and video production, he attended classes in still photography and digital video. At this point, all his interests came together. As Dan worked with video, he began creating scenes that didn’t create any emotional stress. After he shared the video with friends, they encouraged Don to market his work. The traditional dulcimer music on the DVD is performed by Louisville artist, Molly McCormack.
Dan believes that Kentucky is a beautiful place and he hopes his work affords people an opportunity to see Kentucky in a way that they haven’t seen it before.
Dan’s DVD is available at Speed Museum Gift Shop in Louisville, at the Kentucky Historical Society’s 1792 Shop in Frankfort, and at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea, KY.
