Daniel spent 35 years in television creating commercials and television programs. Primarily he worked with small and medium sized businesses who needed help on how to tell their story.
At TV stations in Virginia and Tennessee Daniel worked with the News and Sales departments to write, produce, direct and edit programs. Along the way, he and his team won a few dozen advertising awards and became a finalist for a regional Emmy award.
When the chance came to work and live on the beautiful sugar-white sands of the Emerald Coast, Daniel jumped at it. Working with the team at WEAR-TV produced long-form promotional programs. Always eager to be a part of the community, Daniel created videos for the Pace awards and met Quint Studer. “At that point,” Daniel said, “I knew I had to figure out a way to work with Quint on a daily basis.” The chance came a year later when he was recruited to produce a library of training videos or Studer Group.
Along the way, Daniel began training staff on public speaking skills. He went on to work with community leaders and nonprofit directors one crafting their messages.
Since then Daniel has trained hundreds of people on how to connect and engage an audience. His training has become some of the most popular programs we produce at Studer Institute.
