A native of mid-Michigan, Daniel spent many days indulging in the state's abundance of aquatic and terrestrial resources. It was through this, with the influence of family and friends, that he developed a desire to conserve and restore the natural environment using ecological engineering. Daniel attended Michigan State University, where he received a Bachelor's degree in Biosystems Engineering, with a concentration in Ecosystems Engineering. As an undergrad, he conducted research in a diverse range of topics, including plant genetics, irrigation scheduling, and stormwater BMPs. When not busy with research and schoolwork, Daniel is usually either in the woods, on the water, or cheering on his alma mater and other favorite sports teams.
