Dan Elaine (DiFalco) Daugherty- Many, many years ago, Dan and Elaine met backstage while working tech for Guys and Dolls in Hauck. They were married in 1999. After working as the Technical Director (Dan) and Adjunct Acting Faculty (Elaine) at UMaine for 8 or 9 years, they recently left Maine. They are currently living in Lafayette, IN where Dan is pursuing an MFA in Technical Production at Purdue University. Elaine is putting her two Theatre degrees to good use by working as the Property Manager for Foxfire Apartments, (which snags them a very nice discount on rent while they tough out three years in the Bible belt…three long years.) Thankfully, they have the most beautiful little boy in the world (the precocious and talented Mr. Michael Shea Daugherty)to keep them busy enough to (almost) not notice how strange this part of the country is. Let’s hear it for liberal tree-hugging hippies on the East Coast!

We always love to hear from UM!
