In high school, Danny loved playing soccer and basketball, two sports notorious for flying elbows, as well as other physical contact. Unfortunately—and painfully—he wore braces at the time.

In each relationship, he takes the time to truly understand his clients’ current financial picture and long-term objectives. Daniel helps clients define exactly what their money means to them — and what they hope it will accomplish for them. Using detailed analysis, he helps clients develop effective financial habits and make sound choices for their future.

Before joining the Brio team, Daniel served as an energy trader for PG&E. Intellectual curiosity and a passion for financial planning remain at the core of Daniel’s work, as he strives to develop unique and fresh approaches to his clients’ needs.

Life Passions

For Danny, family is everything. As one of seven kids and with an ever-expanding extended family, there is always a get-together in the works somewhere! You'll often find Danny visiting Portland to see his relatives and friends or flying out to spend time with his new Spanish family on his wife's side. Outside of his travels, he relishes exploring all that San Francisco has to offer. And whenever he has a moment free, Danny spends time on his efforts to learn the Spanish language.
