Daniel’s work reflects an acute sensitivity to creating spaces where people feel “at home.” Growing up, he frequently relocated and used sketching as a means to conceive houses and spaces that cultivate a sense of belonging and comfort. As an architectural designer, Daniel brings intentionality and a sustainability-driven focus to all his work.

Daniel’s ability to remain cognizant of a project’s overarching design aspirations while applying a detail-oriented project management approach has proven to be a valuable asset for many projects. He has been an important member of project teams at Swarthmore College, Dartmouth College, and Buckingham Browne & Nichols School.

When not working at his computer, you most likely will find Daniel outdoors: cycling, running, and hiking are among his favorite pastimes. His affinity for adventure has only once resulted in the need for a helicopter rescue—an offer he refused when lost at night in the Pololu Valley of Hawaii.

Watching drawings come to life as a building is constructed is one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of my work.
