Dexter grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and did his first play at the age of 5. By 13, he was immersed in school musicals, acting camps and making films with his friends in his backyard. He continued acting throughout high school and college at The University of Southern California, where he received a B.A in Dramatic Arts and minored in The Critical Study of Film and Television. He continued his training at the renowned British American Drama Academy (BADA) in London. After completing that program, he returned to Los Angeles and began working as a professional actor and model.
During his 9 years in Los Angeles, he trained under the famous UCB Improv School, and studied under Hollywood’s top acting coaches. His first television appearance was on the hit Disney Channel show Dog With A Blog. He then went on to appear on the CW’s Golden Globe Award-Winning show Jane the Virgin. His most recent film, Double Belgian, won Best Narrative Feature at the Dumbo Film Festival in NY and was an Official Selection at the Manhattan Film Festival.
Most importantly, his love of acting is contagious, and he is committed to helping others reach their greatest potential.
Originally from Miami, FL, Daniel grew up with a love for theatre and film. After attending a magnet program in high school, he went on to graduate from the University of Central Florida with his BFA in Theatre, acquiring theatre credits ranging from traveling Children’s Theatres (Hampstead Stage, Madcap Puppets) to Regional theatres like the Orlando Shakes. With a passion for humor, Daniel has performed live sketch comedy and improv steadily over eight years, most recently working with the Mighty Shorts Comedy Collective. Since moving to Atlanta four years ago he’s focused primarily on his career in film and television, earning credits in projects such as Atlanta, Richard Jewell, and Gemini Man, among others.
In his free time, Danny loves training jiu-jitsu, meditating, and playing video games. As someone who’s constantly aspiring to learn and grow, he’s beyond grateful to have found a home here at Catapult and looks forward to giving back and sharing his passion with those around him.
