Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell." – Edward Abbey


Danford is the principal planner for Horry County Planning and Zoning.  He has been with the county since 2006 and teaching World Regional Geography with CCU since 2008.  A native of Colorado Springs, CO, Danford traded the mountains for the ocean and rivers.  He enjoys travelling with his wife and kids, camping in the cooler months, and sleeping, none of which he does enough of.  Hockey is his favorite sport (Colorado Avalanche and Colorado College), but he is also a big fan of the Denver Broncos.
