Daniel was born in the Netherlands in the city of Eindhoven. Originally playing and being taught classical piano at the young age of 8 he started his musical journey. Although he liked playing the instrument, his interest in music started to shift more towards heavy rock and other guitar driven music. He picked up the guitar at the age of 14 and taught himself how to play. It was in the first years of high school where he met guitarist Roman. After years of playing around and jamming gigs, Daniel decided to work towards a bigger project, composing songs for what would be the first release of Shadowrise.
He attended and completed a music study from which he graduated in 2016. During the course he started to become interested in composing for other media, like games and film as well. Shortly after he started working for a game company as the main audio designer, composing and producing game audio for games and applications.
