Your Local Tucson Team Member - Dan Curran


"Sure I'll come to Tucson to help you out for a bit." That's what I told my brother's in-laws when they opened up New Horizons in Tucson June of 1997. Twenty years later, three kids, and a great career at New Horizons, I don't think I'm considered a Californian anymore. Not only did I help write the prospectus and was a part of the process to get investors to open the new center, but I came out to assist with sales. I never would have thought I'd connect with so many great people out here over the years, but I've got some great stories...

Your Local San Diego Team Member - Chris Ledbetter

I emancipated myself at 17 to serve in the US Navy. I trained in Chicago before being attached to the Marines in both San Diego and Okinawa. Upon my depart from the military,I took up charge of project management and writing up and negotiating government bids for my family’s construction company in Fresno, while attending college at Fresno State. Following a brief stint heading up an electro-physiology department at a medical school in Puerto Rico, I grew a moving company headquartered in DC to multiple locations across the East coast. What brings me back to San Diego you ask? Not only to be closer to family, but to also to be able to take care of my own – the military community.

Your Local Sacramento Team Member - Ed Gans


I grew up in the Chicago area and received my B.S. from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. After living in Austin, Texas, Southern California and Montana, my wife and I decided to move to Sacramento to be closer to her extended family of 200 relatives in the Bay Area and start our own family.

Your Local Los Angeles Team Member - Aaron Brown

A California native, I was born and raised in Santa Monica, and as you can probably guess, yes, I love the beach, water sports, surfing, fishing, bike riding, you name it. Currently working out of our Burbank center, I've been with New Horizons for over 22 years! Even though I’ve always worked on commission my whole working adult life, my passion and competitive nature started back as a quarterback at Santa Monica High School, and a receiver at USC.

Instructor Highlight - John Warner

John, an Applications and Business Skills Instructor, got his first computer in 1986 (a dual-floppy 8088!) After working with computers and the nascent internet (Mosaic browser, newsgroups, etc.) at school, he taught Applications and Networking for New Horizons from 1997-2003.
