NATIONALITY: UNITED STATES
Daniel has loved the water ever since a young age, growing up in Orange, California. After a trip to Hawaii with his grandparents, he realized this is where he wanted to be, in nature and beneath the sea. Daniel then packed up, moved to Hawaii and changed his life.
Starting out spearfishing, Daniel progressed quickly, taking first place in several renowned competitions, where he then naturally fell into pursuing his career in competitive freediving.
Daniel now competes internationally among the best freedivers in the world. His relentless drive and passion lead to Daniel become the third ever American to reach 100m/328ft and break the US national record while he was at it, becoming the deepest freediver in America, diving to 102m/335ft.
