Born and raised in Chicago IL., Daniel grew up in a musical family and was interested in pursuing music at a young age. Daniel became so obsessed with drumming that he would play along with albums all day long and air drum in his room all night!
"To this day I still challenge myself musically and really focus on my techniques!
It wasn't unitl my late teenage years that I knew I wanted to turn my drumming into a business.
I remember sitting behind my first drum set thinking this is what I want to do!"
