Daniel grew up in a middle class family in western New York. Despite his rather normal up bringing , Daniel would always find a way to getting into fights and rebeling against the system in his youth.

Through various jobs Daniel had somehow made connections in the local music scene and eventually he started promoting shows and parties throughout western New York.
Daniel frequently worked with a group of guys that went to Simon Buisness school In Rochester who would throw parties to make a little extra money, eventually becoming close friends.
After building a relationship with this group of friends Daniel was invited to join them in a cruise that they were planning, after some consideration he reluctantly agreed.
Just before he and his friends boarded Daniel pondered the success and the life he had been living, looking out over the ocean he made a phone call to his mother in hopes to rebuild the relationship with his family that was broken just a few years ago. Unfortunately there wasn't an answer,Figuring that he'd get a chance to speak with her another time Daniel did not leave a voicemail and continued to board the cruise bound for Europe.
The next evening a violent storm hit the Green Sea sinking the vessel. Frantically searching for a life raft, with none of his friends in site Daniel was swept away by a massive wave. After waking up on the shores of Chernarus without a clue of how he got there he soon realized that something was wrong and things wouldn't be the same anymore.
Had he known the events that would take place that cold July night maybe He'd have walked a different path.
