Originally from White Plains, New York, Daniel is a graduate of Emerson College where he received a BFA in Media Production with a concentration in Digital Post-Production.

 

While a Freshman at Emerson, Daniel was first introduced to the world of color grading and instantly fell in love. He was mesmerized not only by the effect that color has on the mood and final look on the film, but also how much color changes the audience's perceptions and emotions.

 

Daniel works primarily as a colorist and editor and has works on full length feature-films, commercials, shorts, and music videos.

 

This past year, he worked as a colorist on the film, 'Light of the Moon', which premiered at SXSW 2017, and was color assist for 3 films at Sundance 2017, as well as the Academy Award Best Picture winning film, 'Moonlight'.
