sound design work.

Sound design has been Daniel's passion since he was a teenager; more recently, it also became his job. In that time, he's designed dozens of productions and worked in theaters across New York and Chicago. For his designs he has composed original music, performed live accompaniment, and mixed upwards of 40 mics (not all for the same show; that would be silly).

Take a look at his resumé, or listen to some samples of his work below.
