Daniel, a medical student at the Medical College of Georgia and alumnus of Georgia Southern University, is a Level 4-NTS Coach. He leads the Augusta University Jaguar Archery Group and Roary's Rangers Archery (JOAD and AAP), both teams that have started in the last few years. Both teams have shown great competitive success at various levels of competition, including state, regional, and national podium finishes. Daniel's coaching philosophy centers around building his athlete holistically and maintaining a "hakuna matata" (from The Lion King, meaning "no worries") attitude through even the toughest of situations.

Daniel is also an active athlete himself. Since starting competitive archery, Daniel has distinguished himself competitively, winning six total individual National Collegiate Championship titles from indoor, outdoor, and 3D archery (along with several team and mixed team titles).
