Scott met Dan earlier in high school, though it wasn't for several years that they would make a film together. He runs a YouTube channel, which he created in October 2011, and has posted videos on the channel since February 2014.
On March 24, 2016, Dan was in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, the series' intended final installment. He was initially said to be playing a villain, though his character wound up being more of an antihero. Dan went on to play Rasputin in the film, and began filming his scenes on May 17. He finished filming on June 9, the last day of filming for the project. The film served as Dan's acting debut; unlike many of Scott's new actors, Dan's first role was a major one.
In early 2017, Dan took up a hobby of creating vlogs on his YouTube channel, and he continues to do so. On March 21, he was confirmed to return as Rasputin in Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption. He began filming his scenes on May 16. On June 5, Dan was cast as an unrevealed antagonist in the film, who was originally set to be played by Ryan Grier. Ryan had stopped showing up to filming, and Scott chose Dan to take over the part, namely for his physique and use of hand motions while acting. He finished filming his scenes on July 20, and the film was released in August.
In February 2018, Dan was approached to take on a role in No More Smiling, but was unable to participate in the project. In June, he was approached to have a role in The Battle of Munich: The Machine of Munich III, and was cast in the film on June 3. He portrays the doppelgänger of a goon named Hoffman, and filmed his scenes the next day. The Battle of Munich was Dan's first role outside the Bread's Crumbs series.
