Daniel graduated from the renowned London College of Printing and Distributive Trades in 1998 as the youngest in its highly competitive program. He began his film career editing for production company "Great Guns" in London, where he worked with the industry's leading talent. After moving to Australia in 2000, Daniel edited for some of the world's leading directors in commercials and received awards for his efforts at the Australian Television Awards and the London International Advertising Awards. He first edited at "The Post Office Films" and went on to become part-owner of the high-end post production company MRPPP, with offices in Melbourne and Sydney, and over 40 staff. Dan began his migration into directing as writer/director of the short film "Triple Concerto in D Minor" (2008). The film enjoyed screenings in some of the world's leading film festivals including Montreal, Seattle, Chicago and London. Claiming wins in various categories around the circuit, the film caught the eye of writer/producer Antony J. Bowman, who asked Daniel to direct the short "Three Sixty" (2010). The project has gained such momentum that it is due to shoot as a feature version in 2011. Dan is represented through "Principal Entertainment" in Los Angeles and New York.
