Danny grew up playing baseball as a little leaguer in the Bronx, New York. He played through high school and attended New York University as a Metropolitan Studies and Music Business major. Fresh out of college, Danny worked in the music industry as an audio engineer and production manager for live concerts and tours. He switched his focus and energies to triathlon in 2010 and became a certified USA Triathlon Level II Coach. He currently coaches the Full Throttle Endurance Level 1 program in New York City at their Chelsea Piers facility.

Danny spends his time working with athletes on improving their basic skills and developing their foundational training structure. Passionate about triathlons, Danny devotes a lot of his time training and racing around the country. Hungry for more knowledge and information, Danny has his personal training certification from National Academy of Sports Medicine along with others from swimming analysis to TRX and Kettle Bell training. Encouraging and motivating his athletes and teammates keeps Danny busy from very early morning swim sessions to late night group run training.
