Duane Dahl, the creator of EarthLab was raised in San Diego County with siblings in a clan made up of six brothers and sisters. His interests in childhood and adolescence were baseball-and more baseball. His early professional life consisted of promoting entertainment events and concerts. Those years were spent traveling around the USA, promoting everything from large scale rock concerts to sporting events. In the late eighties Duane moved to the Seattle area, and not long thereafter met his wife Cindy. While living in Seattle, Duane worked in the sports arena management business, until the internet revolution in the mid to late nineties - which has kept him busy the past several years with his sites Kiss.com, Perfectmatch.com, EarthLab.com and ProjectBaby.com. Duane's long time interest in music and entertainment has continued with his interest in Envisioneer Records a Nashville based record label and publishing group.
Duane and Cindy have two children - an eleven year old son, "the supreme builder of all things Lego," and a five year old boy who believes he is eleven. Besides being an avid sports fan, Duane reports that he is particularly interested in gadgets and new technology - and has gained a recent affinity for fly fishing, river rafting, racquetball and golfing. He enjoys good red wine and an occasional cigar, and his musical taste range from the Rolling Stones to Bob Dylan, Justin Timberlake, Etta James to Tim McGraw. He further reports that he dislikes any food that's green, working in the garden, partisan politics and Keith Olbermann. Perhaps his continued involvement with EarthLab will influence a change in at least a couple of those categories.
