Biography

In 2016, Daniel came to Plancorp after graduating cum laude from the University of Missouri. During his time at the university, he worked as a bank teller at Commerce Bank, interned at Veterans United Home Loans and served as the Student President of the Office for Financial Success.

An Eagle Scout and Marine Corps veteran, Daniel has an innate desire to help others. After watching family and friends struggle with financial decisions, he knew he wanted to pursue a role in which he could help them lead financially stress-free lives. Four years of active duty in the Marine Corps strengthened this commitment. As a Sergeant, Daniel helped his Marines work through a variety of issues, many of them financial.

On the weekends, Daniel can be found hitting the trails on his mountain bike, grilling by the pool or cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs. He also enjoys catching up on his favorite shows: Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and—he admits—The Bachelor.
