While in high school he also earned his Eagle Scout rank. Daniel was active in his temple community at Temple Sinai and made multiple pilgrimages to Israel over the years. In 2014, he graduated from the University of Virginia, McIntire School of Commerce, with a 3.96 GPA, earning a B.S. in Commerce with Distinction, with a concentration in Finance.
