Mini Bio (2)

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Film and Video, Daniel began his career as an editor, honing his storytelling skills and developing a distinctive comedic rhythm that has become his signature. After editing the pilot episode of the hugely successful faux-interview web series, "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis", Daniel moved to directing episodes, showcasing his eye for comedic spontaneity and ability to channel improvised humor. His episode featuring Natalie Portman remains one of Funny or Die's all-time most-viewed videos, with over 10 million views to date and counting.

Daniel followed this success with a number of directing gigs: more classic "Ferns" episodes (with Jon Hamm, Bradley Cooper, and Ben Stiller), a wildly popular star-studded music video for Funny or Die that he also co-wrote ("The Ballad of G.I. Joe"), a web series for Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films ("Stiller & Meara"), and producing and directing a ten-episode docu-reality comedy series for IFC ("Commercial Kings"). He even found the time to get involved in the world of video games, writing "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions" for Activision and lending his baritone to the main character Gideon in Magic: The Gathering's "Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012."
