Daniel was born in Doylestown, PA (just north of Philadelphia) on July 31, 1988. He moved to Springfield at the age of 18 in 2006 to attend MSU. His father still resides in Pennsylvania and his mother lives in Springfield, MO. He has a 27 year old sister who lives in Philadelphia. Much of his mom’s side of the family lives in Springfield and the surrounding area, thus his reasoning to move here to attend college. Daniel is a rabid Philadelphia Eagles fan and believes they are the greatest team in the NFL, as all other teams are vastly inferior when it comes to their fan-base. Go Eagles! Daniel also enjoys spending time with his family and his 3 year daughter Quinn, painting his rapidly expanding collection of miniatures, reading, learning, listening to all types of music but mostly Led Zeppelin, getting lost in the woods on purpose, hammocks, and being outside whenever possible.
