🙋🏻♂️ ABOUT DANIEL
Daniel was born in the former Soviet Union. After surviving a civil war in his home republic of Abkhazia, he immigrated to the United States with his family at eleven years of age. A few years later, at the age of sixteen, Daniel picked up a film camera and became obsessed with the art of photography. Eventually, taking photographs became his profession
; he spent most of his twenties photographing weddings and teaching on the subject of photography internationally.
In 2013, he partnered with two of his friends to start Pixellu - a software company focused on serving professional photographers with easy-to-use tools. Now, as Daniel’s schedule is busier than ever, he is seeking an executive assistant to help manage the business. And, as he and his wife are expecting their first child in August, Daniel will also need assistance with personal tasks.
Daniel is thirty-six years old, married, and lives in Seattle, USA.
