RBC Wealth Management
Before joining a wealth management practice at RBC Wealth Management, Daniel was formerly with both Morgan Stanley and UBS. Prior to entering the financial services industry, he worked as the non-clinical administrator for the inpatient unit at Montgomery Hospice in Rockville, MD.
Daniel studied politics earning a Bachelor of Arts from the Catholic University of America, followed by a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Maryland. He served as an aide to United States Senator Judd Gregg on Capitol Hill and became involved in political campaigns at the local, state, and federal level (on both sides of aisle). He joined the Child Justice Board of Directors in 2014.
Why Child Justice?
“When I decided to run for the Maryland House of Delegates for the 2010 election, a hallmark issue of my campaign was domestic violence—specifically, the need for more laws with teeth against the abusers and greater protections for victims,” he said. “It’s an issue that I have seen firsthand affect family members and friends, and it affects people across the span of socioeconomic classes, cultures and races.”
“Even though I didn’t get the result in the election I wanted, I was able to raise awareness and bring attention to this issue. During and after the campaign, I received a lot feedback from a number of victims of domestic violence thanking me for speaking out on the issue and trying so hard — with an overarching message: No one willingly talks about the issue, especially not the way I had (unless of course it’s convenient, politically expedient or something bad happens to trigger a reaction) but that I focused on it because I had real foresight into the issue, saw it as a problem and wanted it changed.”
“The prevention of domestic violence of any kind—but especially when it affects children—should not be a partisan issue. The work Child Justice does is all encompassing: first and foremost, providing the necessary support to cases and obtaining pro bono support to protective parents, but also having a hand in public policy whether in getting the amici curiae briefs before the United States Supreme Court, having an active court watch program, to participating in the debate on this difficult issue in the Maryland Legislature and expanding nationally. With all that said, it’s an honor to be a part of the important work Child Justice carries out each day.”
