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

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
