Daniel is a dedicated storyteller who aims to explore the human condition through his work. He was born in Birmingham, England, & raised in Melbourne, Australia, where he discovered a passion for film production when he participated in a children's TV workshop. As a teenager he featured in 'The Hillmen' a documentary about his soccer team which was directed by his father & won 'best documentary' at the 1996 AFI awards. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree on the Victorian surf coast he worked in Architecture & played drums in original rock bands. In 2008 he left the design industry & moved to London to perform shows around the UK for two years which was a confronting & formative experience.

He trained in acting & has since featured in commercials, TV & film including a lead role in the indie feature film 'Edda Tudor' which streamed on Prime. He has written & directed  a number of short films including 'Tippy Top' which won 3 awards at small European festivals. In 2023 he featured in 'Ivan's Gift' a short film & ongoing collaboration with Idle Films which premiered at Zeise cinema in Hamburg.
