Daniel graduated from Long Beach State University with a degree in Marketing and minor in Communication Studies. He is currently going back to school to pursue a degree in Kinesiology and minor in Nutrition, with the intention of applying to graduate school to become a physical therapist. One of the many things that Daniel enjoys about physical therapy is being able to incorporate movement into people’s daily lives. He enjoys developing relationships with patients and making the care progress as fun and enjoyable as possible.
On his off days, Daniel spends most of his time with his two dogs at the local dog park and occasional hike around Portland. He enjoys all forms of exercise, and has recently focused more on cross-training workouts, incorporating more mobility and stretching in his routine. Most weekends you’ll find him at Providence Park supporting the Thorns and the Timbers in the Timbers Army section.
Daniel has been vegan for over two years now, and enjoys sharing his newly found passion for animal welfare and plant-based eating with anybody interested in the topic—& no worries, he has yet to suffer of a protein deficiency.
