Daniel grew up in York, Pennsylvania. He graduated from high school in 2006 and went on to earn his bachelor’s in Finance and Economics at Penn State University. Near the end of his undergraduate studies, he discovered his interest in oral health and decided to pursue a career in clinical dentistry. Since arriving at Harvard Dental he has broadened these ambitions, though he remains uncertain of the path he wants to take. Daniel enjoys participating in musical performance – he has been the lead singer of multiple indie rock bands as well as a member/director of two a cappella groups throughout his collegiate career. He has devoted much time to teaching and mentoring, both in his capacity as a musical director and in academic settings throughout high school and college. In his down time, you can catch Daniel catching up on internet sketch comedy and old episodes of Saturday Night Live.
