Daniel has had a passion for space ever since he was a child, and continues to pursue his dream of becoming an astronaut. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Georgia Tech in 2018 and was soon after hired as a mission operations engineer with SAGE III/ISS. His specialty on the team is the Interface Adapter Module (IAM), which among other things serves as SAGE’s main interface between ISS and the payload.

Outside of work, Daniel enjoys gaming and hiking with his dog Kona.
