Daniel works as a free-lance editor in the Metro-Detroit area, and his resume includes a wide variety of industrial film, and music videos.
His film, The Passage was created on a mere budget of $4,000, however, the talents used in the film are worth far more, resulting in what has been called:
A high speed, emotional thrill ride. Jessica Shaw, Real Detroit A damn good movie The Passage is a class joint all around.-Erin Pedelski, The Metro Times
All the hand-held camera swagger and gunplay youd expect from a crime drama in Detroit, with surprising depth that gives it an edge. - John Monaghan, The Detroit Free Press
