A native of New York City and currently based in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Daniel began playing music at a young age developing his craft in drum corps activities and military bands. His technical skills and unique sound are the results of formal study and years of experience performing on stages worldwide. Daniel performs and records with Norbert Stachel, Pablo Batista, and others locally and abroad. With an undergraduate degree in music performance and a graduate degree in education, Daniel connects his love for drumming with a deep interest in positive social-emotional and mental health. In his workshops, Daniel strives to teach students how to access and express their authentic voice. "It's about rhythm, but it's not all about the drums," and students gain more than just drumming skills.
