While Daniel does shows in places like Sheraton in Waikīkī and Down Beat Lounge in Chinatown, he stays busy by writing, mixing, and promoting his own music and music videos. Daniel also stays busy with contract work fixing houses and training in taekwondo. While these may all be mentally and physically straining for some, Daniel is passionate about sports and finds taekwondo to be relaxing, using it as his relaxation time.
