"Daniel grew up living abroad as a Military brat, and after coming of age, took a three month vacation to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego. Upon becoming a Marine, Daniel trained and deployed as an Aerial Gunner on a helicopter affectionately referred to as a “Phrog.” While conducting various flight regimes, to include serving on the II MEF CASEVAC team while in theatre, Daniel realized he was afforded a unique view of the world and got his first DSLR Camera to document life as a Phrog aircrewman, and thus, a love for photography was born.
After serving eight years, Daniel moved back to Texas and began chasing tornados, living out of his kayak, bowhunting the Texas woodlands and exploring pre-historic cave paintings, all with his camera en tow. Daniel, who also serves as a fire fighter in a rural north Texas town, is an ardent supporter of traumatic injury care becoming making it's way into the psyche of the outdoor community and believes it is paramount for hunters, fishermen, kayakers and outdoorsmen (and women) to carry, at a minimum, a hemostatic control kit."
