It’s Daniel’s dream to become a cinematographer, which is why he is hoping to study Film at Cal State Northridge, having made films at Valley Oaks Center for Enriched Studies in Sun Valley.  When he’s not at school, you can find Daniel getting tacos from Tacos Tijuana or exploring Angeles National Forest.
