ABOUT

ME

Originally from Detroit, Danny started making films when he was five, and he's simply never stopped. Over the last two decades, he's made a name for himself as a director, editor and writer in the short film and commercial world. This last year, he took the next step, releasing his first feature-length project to rave reviews - the fantastical visual-album, Fairytales for the Fatherless, which he co-wrote, directed, produced and edited. 

 

Three of the shorts he edited this past year -  "Summer Fridays," "The Bishop," and "Until Next Time" - are currently circulating the festival market. In addition, he worked very closely with Michael Stahl-David on his short film "We Win" starring William Jackson Harper, which premiered at SXSW 2018, won best screenplay at RIIFF 2018, and will soon be released as a Vimeo Staff Pick. He also edited the festival-circulating comedic short "The Actor" starring Katie Kopajtic, Lynn Cohen, and Cathy Curtin, as well as the RIIFF-premiered short film "Pure" starring Zachary Booth, and the first two episodes of "Beyond the Record" - a docu-series done by Guinness Book of Records and Facebook Watch - which have, as of January 2019, been streamed over 5.9 million times.

 

His other directorial work includes: the self-produced sitcom pilot "Highlighters," the first three episodes of the award-winning web-series "Living Thru The Lens,” the short film “The Werewolf Hunter,” the docu-series "Joe Guitaro,” two episodes of the recently-released comedy series "Irritable Becca Syndrome," and has, since 2015, directed eight one-person shows that have been staged at The Cell (NYC), The Bowery Poetry Club, and The Cornelia Street Cafe.

To fill his days, Danny freelance edits and directs with a handful of production and post production houses; he writes for Young’s Market Company, United Cerebral Palsy Detroit, and a wide variety of other clients; and he teaches acting, writing and filmmaking for a number of schools in New York, Stockholm, and Detroit.
