Personal Overview

Originally from South Africa, Daniel has had the fortune to experience and embrace a multitude of diverse cultures. He has grown up engaging with people from a wide range of backgrounds - befriending most.

He enjoys challenging physical activities and is always searching for something new to do. Currently, he is working on his chess skills, taking up spearfishing, and is making a return to competitive martial arts. He is also part of a small team of researchers in economics, focusing on green energy and climate change.

When he is not occupied with his regular activities or friends, he can normally be found reading, attempting to cook, or spending too much time updating his latest data model in Excel.
