Daniel grew up in the southern part of Mexico City surrounded by art and culture in his grandfather’s library. His extensive background in design and animation has led him to create films with a unique sensibility for visual storytelling that elevates the everyday.
Daniel’s short film was part of the YDA ’20 and was awarded at the Savannah Film Festival, and his music videos have gathered a UKMVA nomination and more than 90 million views. In 2017 he was awarded as one of the Shots “Rising Stars”, where he was selected as the next generation of artists under the age of 30 in the creative industries.
He has been writing and directing short films that aim to spark hope and positive change in our society through storytelling. In 2020 he was shortlisted at the Young Director Awards in Cannes with his short film “Influx”.
At Brand New School, Daniel has collaborated with clients including Google, White Claw, Apple, Slack, and Meta.
