About Daniel

I studied 'Digital Film and Television Production' at JMC Academy Sydney, and have done a number of short courses before writing/ producing a community TV comedy show which aired 4 seasons in Sydney.

I’ve co-written horror/ thriller features and had success writing and producing short comedy films in Australia. While I do work on the production side of things when I can, I'm predominantly a screenwriter. I prefer comedy but can work in other genres.

I'm happy to collaborate with other writers as part of a team, recently have been working as a freelance script editor/ consultant and am always looking for a new project.
