Daniel is best known as "Darryl" from the 1988 sci-fi cult classic THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING.  The
sequel to Wes Craven's original film finds the DC Comics superhero again battling the evil Dr. Arcane (Louis
Jourdan) and vying for the affection of Arcane's stepdaughter Abigail (Heather Locklear).  Darryl and his
friend Omar constantly find themselves in trouble.  Luckily, Swampy has a tendency of saving the day!

From there, Daniel did several television appearances (including IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and the
critically acclaimed I'LL FLY AWAY) before finding himself in the 2000 Dreamworks comedy ROAD TRIP
opposite comedy stars Tom Green and Ethan Suplee.  More recently, he has become quite prolific in the
realm of independent horror and has worked with many of the genre greats such as Robert Englund, James
Hampton, Tiffany Shepis, Michael Berryman, Bill Moseley, Tony Todd, and Danielle Harris.

In 2012, Daniel and business partner Jim O'Rear formed Deviant Pictures.  Their inaugural project, THE
HOSPITAL, is currently available from most online retailers and video-on-demand services.  A controversial
film from the beginning, THE HOSPITAL rocked audiences with its visceral content and taboo subject
matter.   Taking the sickness worldwide, THE HOSPITAL played several international festivals including the
prestigious Festival de Cannes before being banned by the Bulgarian government and pulled off of the
shelves of the retailer Tesco in the United Kingdom.

Their second project, comedy-horror CAMP MASSACRE, finished production in late 2013 and is currently
awaiting its worldwide release in early 2015.  CAMP MASSACRE was written by Daniel and co-directed by
Daniel and Jim.  Daniel, Jim, Bree Olson (KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS, THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE
III), Dick Warlock (HALLOWEEN II), Al Snow (WWE legend), and Scott Tepperman (SyFy Channel's GHOST
HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL) star.
