Directing

After fifteen years experience in theater directing, in 2016, Daniel returned to his first love of film directing and editing when he moved to Hollywood. In 2017, he released his first professional short film, More Happy, before returning to the stage to direct the 2017 theatrical production, YOU, which charged a nation-wide record of $5000 per ticket to a nightly audience of just one person, and was given feature coverage in Newsweek and LA Weekly.
