Daniel has been playing music since the age of 4, when he approached his parents with the request of learning piano. He has since explored the magic of many instruments, while landing comfortably on the guitar and mandolin.
Daniel received his BA in Zoology and Music in 2012, and moved to California shortly after to pursue both music and environmental conservation. Daniel has years of experience teaching private and group lessons in guitar, piano, music theory, music composition, and music improvisation. He has played in numerous bands, his most recent being a bluegrass band in Santa Barbara, Salty Strings, where he was the founding member, booking and social media manager, and mandolinist.
Daniel moved to Denver in 2022 to live closer to family and to continue his dual careers in science and music. Daniel loves to inspire, he loves to teach, and he loves to play music.
