Daniel was born in Sydney, Australia, and attended the prestigious Sydney Boys High School. A talented student and athlete, his professional acting debut came in 1998 in Australian drama 'Neighbours'. The role of Joel Samuels was written specifically for him. In almost four years on the show, Daniel won a Logie Award for Most Popular New Talent, and in 2001 was nominated for Most Popular Actor.

In 2002 Daniel moved to London to star in the stage musical 'Godspell' in which he alternated the roles of Jesus and Judas nightly. He revisited this Biblical theme in 2004, again playing the role of Jesus in 'The Mysteries' onstage opposite revered UK actor Edward Woodward.

While in London, Daniel also starred in UK Television favourite 'The Bill' as PC Cameron Tait (2003-2005) and in 2004 was Nominated for a British Television Award for Best Newcomer.

Upon returning to Australia in 2005, Daniel starred in UK-Australian Co Production 'Tripping Over' and has since proven his enduring popularity, playing Detective Simon Joyner in 'City Homicide', the number 1 show in Australia in 2007.

In his spare time Daniel likes to keep in shape by competing in Triathlons, and was recently named in the Australian Age Group team to contest the world championships in Canada in 2008.

  • Before starting his career in "Neighbours" Daniel was a triathlete. He met his first agent while spectating at a triathlon in Sydney, and thats what prompted him to take up acting. Daniel still competes and recently raced in the New Zealand Ironman event.
