Daniel’s Mission

To exemplify a life that loves God, loves people, and makes an impact in the world.

To encourage others to discover their callings and live life in passionate pursuit of their destiny.

To motivate others to strengthen their lives through health, fitness and nutrition.

Daniel was born and raised in Houston, Tx. The second oldest of five kids who were all homeschooled, Daniel was always a fun-loving adventurer. Growing up, he spent a lot of time outdoors, climbing trees and playing sports. Fun fact: he wasn’t very good at any of the sports he played as a kid. He just loved being active and was competitive enough to not quit when things got tough. During his high school years his focus turned to new passions such as singing, dancing, acting and the performing arts. He also became more involved in his home church through music ministry.

After graduating high school, he attended a two-year ministry school and received an associates degree and simultaneously began coaching & training at Iron Sports Ninja Gym. In 2015 he began his rookie year competing on season 7 of American Ninja Warrior and thus his journey to becoming one of the top athletes on the show. That season launched him into his athletic career with accomplishments like 7x National Finalist and title of 2020 Champion of American Ninja Warrior. He was also selected to compete on multiple All-Stars episodes as well as multiple USA VS. The World competitions. He was a team captain of seasons 1-3 of Ninja vs. Ninja and even had the opportunity to travel abroad to compete internationally in Ninja Warrior Indonesia representing team USA.

This recognition and success gave Daniel opportunities to begin traveling and become a motivational speaker. His goal is to use his platform to help inspire people to get back up when they inevitably fall or fail, overcome the obstacles they will face in life and never stop pursuing their God-given dreams.
