Daniel has been working at film festivals and writing about the industry for the past several years. He’s been a publications editor for Sundance since 2015, he’s starting his third summer with Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival, and he was print traffic manager for the 2018 Freep Film Festival, a documentary fest organized by the Detroit Free Press. Daniel became a Vanity Fair contributor last year, where he wrote several columns about the Oscars and was a featured guest on their popular Little Gold Men podcast. His writing has also appeared in The Verge, MovieMaker, Backstreets, the Ann Arbor Observer, and Detroit’s Metro Times, and he maintains the Third Man Movies blog, which is named after his pick for the greatest film ever made.

Daniel also spends his time obsessing over the NBA (and rooting for the Pacers), selling comics on eBay, and sheepishly defending the fact that he’s still proud of his CD collection. He mostly lives in Ann Arbor with his girlfriend—an architect who specializes in historic preservation—and their rat terrier, Mischa, who has the dog mutant power of being able to rotate her ears almost 180 degrees.
