Danny P. "Gator"
Danny ("Gator") is a US Marine with years of operational experience in Law Enforcement Special Weapons and Tactics, State Department Diplomatic Protection Services, US Government high threat mobile operations, and Special Agent. To date, Gator has served as cadre for Department of Energy, State Department Antiterrorism Assistance program, Universal Shooting Academy, Surefire Institute, Strategos international and Deliberate Dynamics. Danny will share lessons from the battlefield and share how we can conquer the battlefields God has placed in our lives.
He has a way of helping people to breakthrough and stretch to new levels of greatness. He's Bazzel Baz, aka "Baz", President of the Association For The Recovery of Children and Life Guarantor for a plethora of clients finding themselves in life threatening circumstances. Baz's favorite quote from his father "it isn't what happens to you, it's what you do with what happens to you that counts"...helps fuel his fire as he works with his clients to move to extraordinary performance and motivation. Baz's favorite quote from his mother "keep God first" is the source from which the fuel is derived.
As the recipient of the Intelligence Commendation Medal and numerous Exceptional Performance Awards, Baz is able to draw from his ten-years supporting the CIA as an undercover operative in field intelligence collection operations throughout the Far East, Middle East, Northern Europe, Central America, South America, the Mediterranean and Africa. These experiences as a Paramilitary Officer in developing and recommending policy, operational doctrine, hostage rescue involvement, as well as methods and techniques for use in clandestine activities place him head and shoulders above speakers who are not battle tested.
Baz is a Citadel Graduate, former U.S. Marine counter-terrorism Officer, CIA Intelligence Special Operations Group Officer, Film and Television Writer/Producer and founder of the Association for the Recovery of Children (ARC) humbly acknowledging a 100% successful rescue rate. (Also - Association For The Recovery Of Children on Facebook).
He is respected by many as one of the Hollywood/CIA go-to-guys, Baz continues to interact with production favorites as DreamWorks SKG, MBP, TNT, FX and others as well as co-staring on NBC television series The Blacklist.
