In college Daniel became hooked on gymnastics and continues to train as a preferred means of exercise with Mike Washlake, a veteran gymnastic coach and well known stuntman. Daniel's success at combining his martial and acrobatic skills has awarded him the opportunity to work with Jackie Chan and Samo Hung (Martial Law). Daniel continues to train regularly with Andy Cheng, one of Jackie Chan's top fight choreographers and action director on US SEALS 2.As an actor Daniel has applied the intense dedication and discipline acquired from the martial arts and prefers a routine exercise of his craft. Although he loves the action genre, he is dedicated to attaining strong and exciting roles outside the genre as well.
