Ensemble creation is something I would love to study and to be a part of. To be further pushed out of my comfort zone, unapologetically dismantle the ugliness of the past so that I can further assist in presenting a better tomorrow. Truthfully, Soulpepper feels like the leader of that tomorrow. Taking responsibility for its past and spearheading the future. Pushing the work to its limits in bold ways with fresh, new voices”.

“I am beyond thrilled to learn from and be challenged by the wonderful team at the Soulpepper Academy and to create new friendships with my fellow classmates.  I hope to gain a newfound understanding of my role within the theatrical landscape and it's future.” 

Born in Hamilton, ON, Daniel spent the majority of his childhood in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Zadar, Croatia. 
After returning to Canada to complete his secondary education, Daniel graduated with a B.F.A Performance Acting degree from Ryerson University. 
Following this, he was accepted into the Stratford Festival's Birmingham Conservatory for Classical Theatre, a two-year professional training program aimed at preparing actors for the demands of classical text & Shakespearean drama.
