He worked hand-in-hand with his father and employees as a carpenter and with his mother at the office, designing and leading the branding, marketing and business plans.

Daniel's performance allowed the business to exceed short-term objectives whilst planting strong seeds for the medium and long term.

This 6-year invaluable experience enabled Daniel to have a first-hand business experience where he realised his strategic skills, accomplished ROI, and enabled the organisation to receive Craft Awards and to keep a healthy and well-known branding and clientele up to today.

At the carpentry, Daniel would not only came up with a constant flow of ideas, he was also able to implement them fully hands-on, and in many instances at a less than peanuts price. I'm a very proud father and Daniel an entrepreneurial individual with a lot to offer.
