As an actor, Daniel’s aim is to be versatile in his portrayal of characters, and is attracted to characters quite different to himself. He enjoys immersing himself entirely, and fully embodying his character by adapting his physicality, voice, appearance, and energy. This process has most notably seen him bring to life characters such as self-torturer Adam, in Shane Pike’s ‘Nineteen’, world-conscious David in Stefanie Brooke Harper’s ‘Slammed’, and enigmatic anarchist Karl in Serena Tas’ ‘White Room’.

Daniel began his career as a theatre actor, which he continues to do, and in recent years has begun performing as a film actor. He has also performed in community theatre and at events where he has interacted directly with audiences, such as in ‘Who Are These Robots?’ at Robotronica, where he was roving and speaking with passers-by whilst in character. Other mediums of acting include music videos, where he was filmed lip-syncing the backing rap tracks, and theatre festivals, which include live performances not in traditional theatre settings.

As well as traditional actor training, Daniel completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drama) at the Queensland University of Technology in 2015. He has also furthered his craft by taking various acting classes, improvisation classes, and clowning classes.

Moving forward, Daniel wishes to hone his skillset by discovering and learning new and interesting methods of performance. He aims to continue to perform in the theatre professionally, and expand his portfolio of film projects, whilst improving his versatility of portraying a wide variety of characters.

He made his solo directing debut with theatre company School2Stage on the devised production ‘Carbon and Diamond’, in which he directed a cast of high school students, and lead the process of devising and writing the show. Daniel also enjoys writing, and has written a number of monologues and scenes used by actors for training and show reel purposes, as well as a short film he aims to produce.
