Daniel grew up in NY, the son of an artist and an engineer. His childhood soundtrack was made up of The Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest and Pavement. After graduating Boston University, he headed out to the west coast. He is a creative advisor, producer and content creator. He spent 9 years working at Apple as a producer on all Apple product packaging from the first iPod nano all the way to the iPad. He also worked on Apple retail store programs, and event production for the annual Apple Worldwide Developer Conference. It was here that Daniel found his passion for design and saw how it could change the world.
Photography plays a large role in Daniel’s life. Most of his free time is spent behind the lens capturing landscapes of his travels, enhancing his portrait style, or coordinating efforts to bring community together through photography. He has worked on social media campaigns for Starwood Hotels, Macallan, Outsidelands Music Festival, Surfrider Foundation, Chronicle Books, and American Express.
In 2015, Daniel founded Gramming for Good as a way to connect nonprofits on the Instagram platform with Instagram content creators looking for ways to give back. He is on the Board of Creatives at 100cameras, and is a global ambassador for Artifact Uprising and Ona.
Daniel currently lives in San Francisco and works as a Design Manager at Facebook.
