Daniel grew up in the Berkshires in Massachusetts before attending the Pratt Institute of Art and Design. He takes an interesting approach to fashion by combining his love of science and nature with his love for fashion. The self-proclaimed adventurous designer always thought he wanted to be a zoologist, but a love of art and design eventually took over and he now draws inspiration from animals in order to produce creative textures and patterns in his work. Aside from animals, the greatest fashion influence in Daniel's life has been his mother, whom he says always paid a great deal of attention to details in dressing and grooming.
