For Dan DeRoos, the Midwest is home. Dan grew up in Iowa and earned his degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from The University of Iowa. After a five-year stint as a reporter/bureau chief in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Dan made his way out west.
Working for CBS in Portland, Oregon allowed Dan to discover what is, possibly, the best-kept secret in the country: the Pacific Northwest.
