Meet Daniel

PHOTOGRAPHER/FILMMAKER

Light-hearted fifteen-year-old, a tenth grader who is proud to be in a family with his parents, brother, one dog, three cats, and five chickens.

In his free time, you can find Daniel playing board games and directing films starring his friends and family. He loves to swim, kayak, bike, backpack, and sing. Daniel considers himself a good friend and likes socializing with friends in person, or on FaceTime, Instagram and through video gaming. Daniel belongs to Scouts and his school’s Unity Club. He participated in Connecticut History Day, earning first place for his documentary film on the unsung hero of the civil rights movement, Bayard Rustin. 

Daniel was featured in the PBS Frontline Documentary, Growing Up Trans. Sharing his experience and facing his stage fright has helped grow his confidence and sparked his interest in photo/videography. He aims to embody his favorite quote by Oscar Wilde, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”
