More about Daniel

I serve my local community by ...
volunteering to speak to teens and young adults about saving and good money habits. As an active member of the NAACP since childhood, I have seen several powerful people of color come in and advise our group on various topics of interest, and I always knew that one day I would have a topic of value to bring my community.

In my free time I like ...
tooling on classic cars and going on long drives along the coast. Growing up my grandfather and I used to work on cars in his garage together. I can remember going from being the tool boy, to "here, you want to take it for a spin?" Although he is no longer here, I can still feel him smiling down on me every time I am backing out of the driveway with that smooth deep rumble.
