Daniel is the Director of Asset Management Operations for Data Transfer Solutions in Orlando, Florida.  He notes, "“It’s been an honor to serve on the URISA Vanguard Cabinet the past two years.  Being able to interact with such an innovative, passionate, and energetic group of young GIS professionals leaves me very hopeful for the continued growth and development of our profession.” 

Daniel also serves on the planning committee for GIS-Pro, URISA’s annual conference and is active locally in the URISA Florida Chapter.

The Vanguard Cabinet (VC) is a URISA initiative which debuted in 2011 to engage young GIS practitioners (35 and under), increase their numbers in the organization, and better understand the concerns facing these future leaders of the GIS community.  The Cabinet’s mission is to collaborate with URISA’s Board of Directors and Committees in creating and promoting programs and policies of benefit to young professionals. Comprised entirely of passionate young members selected from different geospatial disciplines, the Cabinet aims to position URISA as the center of opportunities for creative young professionals who are committed to improving URISA and the geospatial profession via innovation, collaboration, networking, and professional development.
