University of California, Santa Barbara B.A. Cultural Anthropology

Wilderness First Responder
Daniel first discovered his love of literature while studying anthropology and history as an undergraduate at the University of California, Santa Barbara. After graduating, he worked for a short time as a research assistant in the Solomon Islands—an experience which later inspired him to work as a freelance journalist. He has also worked as a personal trainer, Muay Thai instructor, substitute teacher, and ice cream scooper. As a substitute, he worked in almost every type of school environment—pubic, private, and charter—and realized there was no better way for a student to learn than one-on-one with a passionate and driven teacher. Whenever he isn’t teaching or planning his upcoming classes, Daniel also writes short fiction.
