We would like to start with some background information. Would you please tell us something about yourself?
Daniel: I grew up in Colorado and was very active in all sports as a child.
What were your dreams and aspirations growing up as a child?
Daniel: I wanted to play in the NHL as a child growing up.
Daniel: I started modeling in college and when I was done with school I moved to Europe to continue modeling. I was in many fitness magazines and did many runways shows in Europe then was offered to work on a soap opera All my Children so that brought me back to Los Angeles. I have been on so many covers of books and magazines I can’t remember the date or the 1st cover but it was when I still was in college. A girl in a class of mine had it and asked if it was really me? I thought that’s was so cool.
Daniel: I think that with the computer and the ability to build backgrounds the cover possibilities are endless. They give a set up to the story so the reader can put a face to the characters they are reading about. Also you will see many more videos are being made with the cover this to help show the reader the characters and set up the story before they even but the book.
Daniel: I am not sure but a lot more than 50 I would guess.
Nudity in the modeling industry can be very controversial. Photographs can range from sensual and sexual to bordering on pornographic. What is your opinion regarding nude photography?
Daniel: This is all art in a way so I feel that if you are comfortable to do the job being asked then go for it. I am not big on shooting nude for myself but for the right project anything is possible.
Daniel: Trusting your instinct will be your best guide. Don’t do anything you feel isn’t right and just remember there will be many more jobs, so don’t take it ‘as the only job I can do or if I don’t so this it won’t lead to more work’. Not true; be yourself; work hard and love what you do and you should be just fine.
Daniel: Oh man, haha, the bad ones are always more memorable. I have had too many bad experiences but one time we shot on a huge yacht and it broke down in the ocean and took 12 hrs or so to get going. That was a very long day.
Daniel: My mother
What do you do when you are not modeling? e.g. hobbies, work-related.

On what are you currently working?
Daniel: The TV show Days Of Our Lives and a film in December called November Ice.
