He started out as a multimedia journalist in the planning, production, multi-platform and DPU departments. In this role, his responsibilities included pitching new ideas, organising camera shoots and scheduling interviews with high-profile guests.

Daniel now works as a football journalist. In this role, he creates and co-ordinates football content across Sky Sports' digital platforms. His responsibilities include writing news and feature articles, attending Premier League games and manager press conferences, conducting interviews, and producing match reports and live blogs.
