Daniel Futa was born and raised in South Bend, Indiana. He received a bachelor’s degree in Advertising and Marketing from Ball State University. Following an Internship at The Late Show with David Letterman, Daniel headed west to Denver to follow his dream of being a radio DJ. After spending several years working in the Denver Market with Clear Channel Radio, Daniel left the city to explore mountain life. Initially planning to spend one season in the valley he took a position with Vail Resorts. Where he implemented the Helly Hansen uniform program and stared in the uniform instructional video which is shown during new employee orientation. Soon one year had turned to six and Daniel realized because of his love for the Vail Valley, he had a strong desire to be a bigger part of the community. So he obtained his Real Estate license and has been proudly serving the Vail Valley as a Realtor for over two years.
