An advocate of chamber music, Daniel has collaborated with EMI Classics artist Sarah Chang, Naxos artist Howard Zhang and Sony artist Denise Djokic and has been featured on National Public Radio in a chamber recital with cellist Ashley Sidon. While studying at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, Daniel learned and performed virtually the entire piano chamber music repertoire. 

Awards received include a Gold Medal from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, multiple BC Arts Council Grants, Vancouver Foundation Grants and prizes from the Canadian Music Competition and the BC Festival of the Arts.  Daniel placed 3rd in the 21st International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs held annually in Paris, France and most recently placed 2nd in the Washington International Piano Artists Competition in 2014.

Academic achievements include a Bachelor and Master of Music, and Diploma of Technology (Advanced Accounting).
