Early Challenge

Daniel has always been good at sports. When he came into Magic and learned, it was competitive, it was easy to get into the competitive side but hard to put his casual side aside

Worst Magic Moment

Daniel was proclaimed as ‘the worst cheater ever’ over an incident that wasn’t as bad as people made it sound. But it was on camera and people saw. People make mistakes and Daniel is stronger now because he had to go through it.

Proudest Magic Moment

Being selected for team Dex Protection. Being recognized as good enough to play with big names meant a lot to Daniel.
