Daniel started his career as a journalist in 2007, working as a newspaper reporter in the Maritimes before coming to The Weather Network as a scriptwriter and online journalist in 2012. Aside from writing about the weather (it's the one thing everyone has an opinion on!) he LOVES stories about space, climate, the natural world and the weirder corners of history.
