Daniel's media gallery

A renaissance man if there ever was one! I grew up without every advantage in a small interior town, lacking television, computer, and Internet. This lack of technology spawned an incredibly creative mind. Painting, drawing, singing, dancing, acting, writing, and inventing were my friends as a child. Leaving school for higher learning, I attended college and university without student loans by working nights at a seniors home and tutoring every subject under the sun to complete my music degree from UBC. After completion, my musical studies brought me to Victoria. to continue training to fulfill my life long dream of being a performance artist, I have worked as a teacher, a bar-tender, a club promoter, dancer,and as a guest soloist for with notable conductors, masses, funerals, and weddings.  I recently started my own fashion promotions company called FREE COUTURE ART CLUB which boasted Best Innovative Use of Fabric at the 2011 ART ATTIRE Victoria Art Gallery Fundraiser.

I premièred my own couture line at the Vernon Public Art Gallery in a wearable-art fashion show for the RIOT ON THE ROOF EVENT in August 2011 with great success. I am currently engrossed in designing swimwear with my friend and awarding winning fashion designer Janet Dundas for a show up coming show with Paper Girl at the Round House events centre in Vancouver.

University of British Columbia
Bachelor of Arts Degree
Music: Voice and Piano
My teaching experience is vast and varied! Firstly, Five years with Kumon Math and Reading gives me solid foundations in both subjects and the joys of seeing the progress of one’s students through critical developing years. Secondly, A one-year contract with the Federal government working for the Quebec school board afforded me the opportunity for ESL training at the high school level in an English minority. After that, three years with private schools and learning academies such as KING GEORGE INTENTIONAL COLLEGE solidified my experience is Business English, TOEFL, TESOL, and adult ESL. Along with ESL, my work with PD PLUS TUTORING in the Vancouver Area kept me busy with school-work tutoring up to 14 hours a day during exam times. To add to the list, SAT prep, TOEFL crunch time, and FCE (Cambridge First Exam) curriculum development were thrown at me with ecstatic results. Finally, my true passion, teaching piano and voice for young and mature enthusiastic talent!
