Deans received his bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from The University of Texas at Austin.

He was employed by Ford and Loral Space Information Systems (via acquisition) for five years in various capacities, including lead engineer and engineering supervisor at NASA JSC.

In 1995, Deans began serving as lead engineer with Lam Research in Freemont, California where he assisted with the design of semiconductor manufacturing equipment. He returned to NASA JSC as a deputy program manager and program manager in the late-1990s, where he stayed until he joined The Dow Chemical Company as Global Reliability Leader in July of 2000. At Dow, Dan led a group of 25 engineers and managers at six global sites including Brazil, Germany, South Africa, Texas and Louisiana. The charter of this group was to improve productivity, which over a five year period, they were successful accomplishing, as plant production improved to over 96% of capacity.

He is a Six Sigma Black Belt and serves in volunteer capacities on several national committees. Deans enjoys spending time with his wife and family, flying (he is a private pilot currently working to achieve an instrument rating), and playing guitar in his church worship band.
