Before joining GoPrime of West Asheville, Daniel lived in Florida where he studied English and Social Science at the University of Central Florida before obtaining a master’s degree in Documentary Filmmaking from the University of Florida. After graduating, Daniel’s career focused on movies and he stayed in that field for more than a decade. Wanting to try something new, Daniel turned to mortgage lending. It seemed like a natural fit that would allow him to interact with people in the community.

Daniel likes to work with clients new to the homebuying process. Remembering what it was like for his family, he can take his knowledge of the mortgage industry and make that process easier. Daniel offers a variety of purchase and refinance loan options including ConventionalFHAVA Home LoansUSDA and Jumbo. In this ever-changing industry, Daniel wants to continue to develop his knowledge and skills and be a resource for others in the Asheville area.

“Helping someone overcome a bad credit history, bankruptcy, divorce, or even just anxiety and getting them into a home makes me feel very proud.”

Daniel and his wife discovered Asheville, NC and like many people, decided it was the home they were looking for. They moved there in 2017 and are excited for their son to grow up in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Outside of work, Daniel loves movies and is a self-described sci-fi nerd. He likes to read anything he can get his hands on from sci-fi comic books to non-fiction about history, philosophy, and psychology. He loves traveling and live music. His family loves animals and have rescued and fostered many over the years. He’s now embracing the outdoor fun that is so different in the mountains than in flat and coastal Florida.
