Daniel said although he is young, his experience travelling the world allows him insight to new ideas he can bring to Summerland’s council. He wants to promote the community to younger families to move to Summerland and improve the downtown. At 26 years old, he has worked in construction and manufacturing, business and loves numbers. He took business at Douglas College, which led him to work in Germany. He spent time in Europe for two years visiting 39 countries. Daniel returned to Summerland because his family lives in the community, but as a child he would often spend his summers in the area. He admits he does not have a political background but believes every experience you have in life moves you forward and that is why he is running. In his spare time Daniel plays curling and slo pitch.
