Daniel was born and raised in Philadelphia and spent his formative years in New York City. His creative direction took a turn when, after one year at Syracuse University’s College of Visual Arts, he was accepted to Berklee College of Music. For the last 25 years Daniel has enjoyed a successful career in the music business as a composer, musician, and producer. However, as a composer he has never strayed far from his visual arts roots, as his musical focus has been underscore for film and television.
Daniel's photographs have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and cultural centers, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Doma Art in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Judith Kaufman Gallery in North Hollywood, California, Photo Alliance in San Francisco, and PhotoBistro.com.
