Originally from Dallas, Texas.
Currently in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Heyo, I'm Daniel - a designer, developer, and behaviorial researcher hoping to further my career in the design space.

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Growing up, I had a unique perspective of the world - being American, and being black. I learned everyone has a story to tell, and it's important to be open to change and fresh ideas.

I found a love for psychology and design my sophomore year of college. After personal struggles with anxiety and depression, I became fascinated with the way people think, feel, and behave - and how products could help them live more fulfilling lives.

I'm a recent grad from the University of Virginia, with a B.A. in Computer Science and a focus in Psychology. Just recently, I finished up an 8-month personal research project for how college students can better care for their mental health, as well as the role counseling clinics play in this. I'm currently using this research to help build out a university telemental health platform with UniWellness.

Outside of design, I'm a major basketball (and Lebron) fan, and enjoy exploring the green outdoors. My fun fact is placing 3rd in a national slam poetry competition.

I'm always down to collaborate when I have the time. Reach out and let's chat!
