Daniel fell in love with theatre by accident, while trying to be an opening bowler for South Africa, and has not been able to get away from it for the last 22 years. With a Degree in Drama & Linguistics from Rhodes University and following 8 years at the University of Cape Town as resident Production Manager & Lighting Designer, Daniel was asked to join the brand new, purpose built Fugard Theatre in Cape Town as Managing Director & Producer in 2010. There he worked alongside Producer Eric Abraham leading a formidable team which established The Fugard as one of the Premiere Theatre Destinations in South Africa.
Daniel, in his career, has produced over 150 Theatrical Productions both locally and internationally, which collectively have received over 220 Award Nominations.
After almost a decade at the helm of The Fugard Theatre, Daniel now offers his Executive Management experience, Mentorship & Training, Consultancy Services and Lighting Design to the Theatre Industry, among others.
MANAGEMENT & LEADERSHIP
“As an experienced Executive Manager of many, multi-skilled and diverse teams, I take great joy from the challenges of leading people in the quest for achieving one common goal. With a human-centric approach at the core, I thoroughly enjoy leading dynamic groups of people in complex time-line and budget orientated tasks.
Should your organisation require Management or Leadership consultancy send me a mail and we can start the conversation together”.
