About Me

Everyone has a story to tell.

Even from a young age, I’ve always been fascinated with telling great stories. As I grew, that passion evolved into a love for visual storytelling. In my high school years at The Founders Academy, I founded the Filmmaking Club and joined the tech team for the Drama Club, where my work on projections won an award at the 2019 New Hampshire Educational Theatre Guild Festival.

After graduating top of my class in 2019 with a 4.22 GPA, I pursued a Business Communications major at Manchester Community College, graduating Summa Cum Laude with an A.S. in 2022. Simultaneously, I honed my work ethic through positions at Alliance Landscaping in Auburn, NH, and Hannaford in Derry, NH. While also volunteered at One Church (formerly known as Manchester Christian Church) as a camera operator and switcher.

In 2022, I was accepted into the One Church Residency Program, granting me the opportunity to pursue my storytelling passion professionally. Throughout the program, I acquired a diverse set of production skills, including lighting, editing, and producing. Moreover, I took on a leadership role in the production of in-person services at the Bedford Outpost, where I recruited, trained, and mentored volunteers as young as eight years old, fostering a culture of excellence in live worship productions. Additionally, I became a content creator for the church’s YouTube channel by developing YouTube Shorts, and shot, produced and edited the High 5, a weekly segment in their worship services.

In 2023, I transitioned to the role of Associate Online Producer at One Church, where I continued my previous responsibilities, as well as editing the weekly online services, post-producing up to 50 minutes of content with a quick turnaround time. I continued to contribute to the exponential growth of the YouTube channel, which saw a surge in subscribers from under 2000 to over 18,000 between January 2023 and April 2024, primarily from shorts.

While working at One Church, I continued to pursue my passion for filmmaking. In both 2022 and 2023, I lead teams in the Four Points Film Project, a global competition in which filmmakers create a short film in 77 hours or less. My most recent film, Just Wait, made it to the final round of their Audience Choice Awards, advancing with 18 out of the 93 films submitted. In total, I have directed eight short films.

With my desire for creating and collaborating, combined with my expertise in video production, I am eager to see where my story goes next.

Daniel was part of my production team for about 2 years. He is always punctual and prepared. He works hard and passionately on what he believes in. He pays close attention to details and communicates, clearly and passionately, with all those he works with. I can confidently recommend working with him for your video projects.
