Born and raised in sunny Southern California Daniel began cutting hair at the ripe age of 18. After graduating from Marinello School of Beauty, he began working at Salon Sessions in Pasadena CA. There he learned from the amazing minds of Neko Abrillo and Hugo Urias. Wanting more, he took a position at a salon in his home town where he quickly became the artistic director. Wanting to hone his craft even further, he decided to switch course and dedicate his time and passion to men’s grooming. He moved to Los Angeles and began working along side Vinnie Morey and Trent Magnano at the coveted Proper Barbershop. After 5 years working along side Vinnie, it was time to find another skill set to acquire. Capsule barbershop was his next stop where he had the privilege of working with and learning from Vince Garcia Julius caesar and Joey Nieves. Daniel has now settled in his permanent home of Greymatter alongside Vince, Julius, Joey and the rest of the impressive team. Daniel is a life time student constantly trying to improve his craft and better hone his skills. Along the way he has had the opportunity to cut and style a number of celebrities including Joe Jonas, Travis Mills, Travis Garland, LJ Bennett, Adam Gregory, and Chaz Bono to name a few. He has also spent time on runway shows at both LA and NY fashion weeks. Education background and achievements include Hattori Hanzo Shears, Prive hair and Team Xotics.
