I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A DREAMER EVEN AS A YOUNG CHILD
Danny was born in New York City to two hard-working, middle class parents. His mother, being from Ecuador, and his dad, from the Dominican Republic, gave him a natural appreciation and love for music, food, and all things pertaining to Latin culture. His love for salsa music and family was cultivated in New York, along with his desire to think BIG—he loved the NYC skyline and towering buildings the city offered.
MY LIFE CHANGED FOREVER AFTER MY PARENTS DIVORCE
At age 13, his life changed forever when his parents divorced. His mom took him and his 2 brothers to California, and in that moment he took on the energy of leading his family. So much so that when his mother didn’t know how to drive, he learned how to at 13 and drove his family around everywhere they needed to go. Due to financial hardships, his family went on Welfare and lived in small apartments in rough neighborhoods. He vowed to change his family’s lifestyle as soon as he was able to.
I BEGAN TO UNDERSTAND THE POWER WE HAVE TO REALIZE OUR DREAMS
At 18, he made himself a promise: he would buy his mother and brother a home in the nicest part of town by the time he was 21. He didn’t know how he would do it, he just knew he would. 3 years later, at 21 years old, he became one of the first homeowners in his entire family, and he moved his family out of the ghetto and into the nicest part of town. This is when he began to understand the power human beings have to manifest and create our dream life—something he would teach others to do later on in his journey.

WHEN MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY EVERYTHING BEGAN TO SHIFT
On January 4, 2016, his beautiful mother passed away after a battle with cancer. This is when everything in his life began to shift. He started asking tough questions like: How could a healthy woman get this illness and pass away at such a young age? Where was God when she needed Him the most? And the toughest question of all: Are you happy? These questions led him to the realization that he was not only unhappy, but also unhealthy and quite miserable. His entire life was focused on seeking external validation, power, and success. Everything the world told him he needed, he had; yet the things that mattered most—peace and happiness—were nowhere to be found.
