An accomplished writer, director, and producer, Daniel has written and/or directed several successful short films, spec pilots, and promotional material for companies including Defy Media, Ubisoft,, and He got his start writing the horror-comedy SEXY NIGHTMARE SLAYERS for Ariescope Pictures and horror director Adam H. Green. Prior to that moment, Daniel accrued experience working in every corner of the production landscape.

Daniel’s first non-comedy short film, INCUBUS, a psychological horror story, won in the Suspense/ Thriller category at the 2018 International Horror Hotel Film Festival. Just prior to that, he directed a promotional comedy video for popular YouTube channel “The Warp Zone” that spotlighted Ubisoft’s then-impending video game release, WATCH DOGS 2. That video has accumulated 6 million+ views since its debut. 

In addition to his many cinematic works, Daniel enjoys writing comics. His first foray into the medium came when writer Marc Andreyko asked him to pitch a 1-page story for the Love is Love Benefit Book to raise funds for the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting. He highly recommends that everyone make comics because nothing beats the elation of receiving artwork for a story in your inbox that completely blows away whatever you pictured in your mind. 


Daniel resides in Los Angeles with his wife and has no dog (yet). Whichever project comes next, it'll sport the nom de guerre that he received from the sage-like owner of a comic store he worked for in high school. It'll be:
