Dan Wallin

Name: Dan Wallin
Age: 85

His Story: At 85, Dan Wallin is the oldest working sound engineer in the film industry, redefining the expectations of aging. Mr. Wallin is on top of the latest technology, often working the long hours required while maintaining his sprawling 12 acre property overlooking Malibu. When he is not working in the studio or using a chainsaw to cut firewood for his home, Mr. Wallin is building equipment at his in-home workshop. He lives what he believes: "Work as long as you can. Stay physically and mentally active. And don't believe the birthdate on your driver's license.

Reflections: "I'm just glad to get out of bed in the morning and get to work. I just love what I do. I've done it all my life - a long, long time. 60 years and I never grow tired of it."
