Headshot of Councilmember Dan Quirk

Dan and his wife, Brie, have been residents of Del Mar since 2010. Dan first got involved in Del Mar civic life in 2013 through the Finance Committee, the 2016 Measure Q Initiative, and the related Utility Undergrounding Project.  For eight years, Dan has also worked at SageView Advisory Group, an investment firm which provides consulting and advisory services to institutions and individuals comprising over $120 billion in assets. Brie works as a registered nurse in the PACU at Scripps Green. They live in the beach area next to Dan’s identical twin brother, Steve, and his family.

Dan grew up in Connecticut and graduated with a degree in finance from the University of Notre Dame. Prior to Del Mar, Dan spent time in New York City and San Francisco.

Dan is an avid sports and outdoor enthusiast. You will find him jogging along the beach, walking his dog Lola along the trails, biking around town, playing volleyball at Dog Beach, and paddling in the water. He also loves to get to the mountains for hiking and solitude—Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite is one of his favorite spots on the planet.

Dan is passionate about data analytics and is very interested in trying to apply smart use of data and technology to improve efficiency in Del Mar’s governance and operations. He is also passionate about the environment and is particularly excited about the rapidly declining costs and big technology changes hitting the solar energy, battery, electric car, and transportation industries. 

Dan is Del Mar’s representative on the North County Transit District (NCTD), and serves as an alternate on SANDAG. He also serves as Council liaison to the City’s Finance Committee, Lagoon Committee, and Utility Undergrounding Committee.

Dan is also the founder of the Coaster Rail-to-Trail Project: coaster-rail-to-trail.org.
