Daniel Roberts, President and Founding Member
Daniel Roberts has lived in Las Vegas since 1996. He attended Bishop Gorman High School on Maryland Parkway, located just blocks from the historic Huntridge Theatre. He is also a UNLV Alumni and spent much of his youth supporting the local music scene by attending shows and managing local talent. Many of these shows were held at the Huntridge Theatre.
Daniel has a history in the construction industry here in Las Vegas. While working at the basic levels of several different construction trades, he learned to appreciate a hard day of work and use what is available to get the job done. Daniel later advanced from the field into the office working as a General Superintendent and Project Manager for his father’s construction firm. Here he gained a knowledge and respect for the art of structural design and its implementation into existing environments. Over the several years Daniel has spent in the industry, he has truly become a jack of all trades.
Aside from his preservation work with the Huntridge Theatre, Daniel is an avid outdoorsman and environmentalist who enjoys skiing, hiking and off-roading. Many days you may find him and his dog exploring the beauty of the surrounding areas, seeking solitude and gathering trash left by others.
