The filmmaker journey began in the early 90’s when Daniel took his first film course at Union County College in Elizabeth, NJ. The course was entitled Intro to Television, and it immediately opened his eyes to the world of film. As he sat in class each day visualizing potential scenes, he realized this newly discovered passion for visual motion pictures and the art of storytelling.
