Daniel is an advocate for education as a daily learner, while his vision is to create inspired, passionate, loving youth who are committed to lead significant and purpose driven lives! He is an author, professional speaker, and professional athlete, all of which play a key role in his unique approach to working alongside youth, parents, educators, community members and business leaders in order to provide long term and sustainable results within our schools and businesses in our communities. He travels around the world leading school assemblies, workshops, training seminars and keynote speaking presentations that focus on providing people with the tools and resources needed to be effective mentors.
Daniel’s focus and love is being the Founder & CEO of his 501(c)3 Non-Profit that he founded in 2010, My Life My Power World Inc. (MLMP), which provides an evidence-based curriculum and training program to PreKindergarten to 12th grade Schools and Universities who have a desire to impact and transform their student’s lives through mentoring. Over the last few years he has also expanded his expertise into the for-profit world and has now founded 3 more companies. He is currently serving as the CEO of Transformational Technologies®, GPS For® LLC, and Co-Founder/Partner of My Life My Brand LLC.
While Daniel’s background is that of a professional athlete (Undefeated Mixed Martial Arts Fighter and Champion of WWE’s Tough Enough Competition), he goes on to tell his story of overcoming challenges and adversity when he was younger. While growing up, he was bullied and harassed almost daily by his peers because he was overweight and labeled with learning disabilities. Over a decade later, and after much success, he decided to use his celebrity title in a way that could truly make a difference for children and teenagers who themselves are facing challenges - not just bullying. Thus, My Life My Power began and since then, Daniel has made it his life’s mission to be build the next generation of mentors that can impact millions of our youth!
ACCOMPLISHMENTS Because of Daniel’s dedication to youth, he has received numerous awards such as Humanitarian of the Year Award for the Golden Badge Foundation, Honorary Service Award from the California Parent Teacher Association, sworn into the United States Marine Corp League in 2015, sworn in as a Kentucky Colonel in 2016, and Humanitarian of the Year Award for Heroes For Freedom in 2017.
