Daniel is an Ypsilanti native. A graduate of Willow Run Community Schools, he studies American Literature with a minor in Theatre, Media, and Communications at Eastern Michigan University. While his education path has been winding with several stops along the way, Daniel will graduate in April 2013 with his Bachelor's of Science. Daniel lives in Pittsfield Township with his wife, and their beautiful daughter.
Daniel came by jazz and public radio through his first love, 20th-century American Literature, when he was nineteen, and shortly thereafter found WEMU. After listening and being an active volunteer for the station for ten years, he was hired in 2010 to produce the program From Memphis to Motown, advancing to handling many other production roles in the station.
