Dan “Tito” Davis comes from a town in South Dakota so small that everyone knows their neighbor’s cat’s name. After attending Black Hills State University in South Dakota, he transferred to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and began manufacturing White Crosses, aka legal speed pills, and soon had the Bandidos motorcycle club distributing ten million tablets a week.
After serving five years of a 102-month prison sentence for tax evasion he could no longer fly for the airlines, his airline transport pilot license was revoked because of his conviction. Being a convicted felon, he was also denied a Nevada real estate license. After striking out on his first two job endeavors, he decided to contact the Colombian friends he had made in prison and began selling marijuana. After he began distributing marijuana, he was set up on a false methamphetamine charge by a childhood friend facing his own drug charges. Facing thirty years, Davis slipped into Mexico, not knowing a word of Spanish. He became Tito and began a thirteen-year odyssey that led him to an underground hideout for a Medellin cartel in Colombia; through the jungles of the Darien Gap, the world’s most dangerous passageway; being interrogated in Cuba, and much more. In 2007 Davis was unlawfully renditioned from Venezuela and returned to the United States where he was convicted of fleeing his original charge and parole violations, but not for the wrongful methamphetamine charge.
During his ten-year prison sentence, Dan “Tito” Davis penned a 700-page manuscript, which chronicled his life on the run from the United States federal government. While living in a halfway house in Wyoming, Davis met with writer Peter Conti and quickly tapped him to “write his story the right way.” For a year the two worked diligently to turn Davis’s raw material into an action-packed memoir called “Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive.”
