Danny received his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from the University of California San Diego and is a graduate of the Sports M.B.A. program at San Diego State University.
Danny grew up playing basketball with his four brothers in Agoura Hills CA. A die-hard Lakers fan, one of his earliest memories was missing game 1 of the 1991 NBA Finals between the L.A. Lakers and Chicago Bulls to attend a 6-year-old’s birthday party (He’s still struggling to forgive that mystery classmate). Since Kobe told him “Obsession is Natural,” he continues to be an obsessive Lakers/Dodgers/USC football fan and is a long time fantasy football addict to boot.
Danny loves competition, loves all things sports and can usually be caught daydreaming, imagining a world where the CP3 trade to the Lakers was not vetoed.
He has also spent time as a production assistant for Fox Sports shows “The Final Score” and “Club WPT” Poker. Danny interned with Dick Clark Productions Inc. in the sponsorship/corporate aliance department, helped launch a sports app called Draftpedia, has been a basketball coach for multiple youth teams, taught all sports classes for kids at his local recreation center and been a mentor/tutor to underprivlidged Foster children in both the Los Angeles and Ventura County area.
