He joined Habbox on the 19th January 2006 after gaining sponsorship from Habbox for his popular trade room known as T R A D E - A W A Y. This room was one of the first of the larger V9 rooms to be converted into a trading room. The sponsorship of this room led to him joining Habbox Forum itself, which then resulted in him joining the Rare Values team later in that same year. He joined the department under the then-Manager smiddy1234 and eventually achieved the position himself by early 2007 after the resignation of Mit; just a year after first joining Habbox.
In addition to Rare Values, he was a member of the Help Desk, Content Design and News/Articles departments. During his time as an Articles Writer, in 2006-2007 and later again from 2013-2014, he provided readers with a popular article titled Rare Values Weekly. This article gained many positive comments as his experience and knowledge were apparent in each issue.
On 6th April 2015, he earned Habbox God status after reaching 20,000 forum posts. As of early 2021 he remains an active member of the forum and marked 15 years on HabboxForum in January 2021. He is also Habbox Forum's Top Poster with over 27,000 forum posts. On the 9th February 2021, he was granted Habbox Legend status.
He is no longer active on the Hotel itself and has been retired from Habbox Staff since 2015.

In 2007, Dan's time as Rare Values Manager ended with the event commonly known as the Samovar Crisis, involving the Russian Samovar as well as the Throne and Holoboy. The controversy was amounting from the fact that -:Undertaker:- and the majority of the Rare Values team at the time, campaigned publicly for these three Rares to be reclassified as Super Rares. This then led to their prices increasing massively over a short period as word spread of their supposed reclassification by Habbox. This event led many to believe that he had influenced the price of these Rares while Manager, leading to his dismissal by then-General Manager 8Freak8 and Habbox Co-Owner sierk.
Following the scandal, -:Undertaker:- joined Habbox's rival site HHGS. He worked there from the year 2007 until 2009, serving both as General Manager and Rare Values Manager of the site. After continued criticism of the then-General Management team at Habbox, he was later banned from Habbox Forum by the General Manager ---MAD---.
On 12th July 2015, he was dismissed as Debates Leader by Wispur after displaying the Confederate flag on his profile and failing to remove the images upon request. This provoked criticism of Habbox General Management by some forum users. In response, Dan left Habbox for a short period but has since returned after a settlement was agreed.
