Daniel is a freelance journalist and English Coordinator for the preparatory year program at Saudi Electronic University. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, but mainly uses it for reporting on war, conflict, and economics. In his studies, he predominately focused on Russian and Middle Eastern politics, devoting his 2015 senior capstone to an analysis of the economic and political situation in Riyadh. Daniel has also spent three years living in the Middle East. In his free time, he enjoys photography, working on his debut novel, and the occasional acting gig in Cairo television. When he needs to turn off his mind to relax, he falls back to the Pokémon games that he grew up with.
