Born and raised in Portugal, Daniel moved to Canada with his family in 2006 when he was 13.
While attending South Huron District High School, in Exeter, he discovered a love for music and audio production, which led him to pursue further education at the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology. He was awarded the SHDHS-OIART scholarship, an opportunity that was arranged by previous OIART grad and, at the time, SHDHS Digital Audio Studies teacher, Matt Weston. Upon graduating in 2013, Daniel returned to Exeter, where he continues to work as a freelance audio technician.
Daniel is currently preparing for a 6 month contract aboard a cruise ship.
