Born in Bedford, Texas, Daniel attended the University of North Texas where he studied music and film. He followed a career in music through most of his twenties and then in fashion photography. Recieving accolades and acknowledgment in both, he continued his training in acting in New York City at Uta Hagen's HB Studio, Stella Adler's Studio of Acting in Master Classes, and Circle in the Square. Daniel's first role was in "Glasspack vs Blackstone" in 2012. In 2013, he shaved his head, lost 30 pounds, and spent months with fight and stunt trainers to play a scarred up cockney serial killer, in "Rambler".
Daniel studied music at the University of North Texas and plays several instruments. He also played in a band, Modakai, that toured the US, had a couple of songs on UK radio, and several albums on iTunes.
Daniel also enjoys scuba diving (wet/ dry suit), horseback riding, rock climbing, weight lifting, writing music, martial arts, cooking, and photography.
Daniel Keith was homeless and sleeping on the subways with his dog while attending the Circle in the Square Theatre summer professional program, on Broadway in NYC, and studying with Alan Langdon, Kimberly Vaughn, and Sybil Lines. He would use the last car of the A Train to sleep, exercise, sing, and rehearse for auditions in the middle of the night.
In 2006, after a night of drinking in a small town on the boarder of Texas and Mexico, Daniel decided to buy a map from a gas station, load up his truck, and drive 1,800 miles to New York City. After his truck broke down outside Manhattan in Jersey City, NJ, he abandoned it and decided to stay.
