He believes his professional experience as a banker allows him to see firsthand how various companies and public sector entities operate, which in turn allow him to relate real world examples to his students. He says, “My favorite thing about teaching is the interaction and engagement of students in the discussion forums. I encourage students to never give up on their dreams. If you continue to shoot for the moon, even if you don’t get there you will always be part of the stars.” Dr. Daniel lives in Henderson, NV and has five grandchildren.
