Daniel grew up in California where he spent his time playing soccer and long-distance running in between camping trips to the mountains. He received his Bachelor of Science in biology from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo in 2010 and worked a variety of jobs from whitewater raft guiding to non-profit environmental conservation work while pursuing his passion for rock climbing around the western United States. He went on to study physical therapy at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, graduating in 2020 with his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
Daniel’s approach to patient care is focused on empowering people to take an active role in their own recovery and providing them with tools and strategies they can use to stay healthy and injury free for the rest of their lives. He incorporates the most up-to-date and research-based treatments while staying focused on the patient’s goals and values. He is dedicated to his own learning and professional development and is always looking for ways to improve his practice.
As a lifelong outdoor athlete who enjoys pushing his own physical and mental limits, Daniel understands the importance of gaining strength and confidence to return to high-demand sports and activities. In his free time he enjoys rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, and going for runs and hikes with his girlfriend and his dog Marshall.
