Daniel is a Southern California native. When he’s not mentoring youth, you can find him at a coffee shop reading, hanging out with his friends, or hunting for vinyl records.

Daniel describes his first interaction with porn—a group of friends showed him on his birthday in the 6th grade—and how he developed a natural curiosity for it.
