He was raised by his Dad, Leo, a retired Union Ironworker and Korean War Veteran and his Mom, Polly, a secretary for his Uncle's small business.

Daniel graduated from White Oak High School in 1991 at the age of 17. Immediately after graduating High School, he entered college as a Political Science major. But he decided to take a more hands-on approach to political science by running for Mayor of his hometown when he turned 18. Although he lost the race, the experience was valuable to his future political endeavors.

They also helped organize and work directly with a group of private volunteers from all over Texas who donated their time to help clean up Bridge City, Fannett and Sabine Pass after Hurricane Ike.
Over the years, as a result of daily immersion by his parents, Daniel stayed politically active and aware.
Since 1992, he has worked as a field volunteer for many Republican candidates and in 1996 was elected as Chairman of the Gregg County Constitutional Committee. This was a citizen-led initiative to draft a new Constitution for Texas.
He also worked as the Public Relations Director for CAP-IT, an organization founded in Longview to force regulation of sexually oriented businesses.
