Burnie has made several references on the Rooster Teeth Podcast of how he came to know Dan. While training new hires at "the tech company", Burnie noticed that Dan's application was never submitted; he just showed up for training 
While Dan was more present in Rooster Teeth's early years, he has since focused on his day job, leading to less appearances by Donut in the show, and Dan not appearing at RTX and other conventions. He is married and has a son.
