Daniel believes in the power of business and local leaders to make small changes in communities and in turn change the world.


While living in Malaysia in 2008, Daniel met a Rohingyan refugee family fleeing genocide in his neighborhood.  That experience was the seed of creating multiple non-profit and for-profit initiatives in Southeast Asia including KUDZUU and LIT Coffee.


He now lives and starts businesses in small town America.


“Life is business and business is life. The more you understand one, you understand the other.”
