ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A print and broadcast journalist for more than fifteen years, Daniel came to the U.S. from his native Paris in 1962.
Born at the American hospital in 1937, he studied drama at the Paris Conservatory and was chosen by Jean-Louis Barrault to become a member of the Renaud-Barrault Theater Company. In 1962, he decided to immigrate to the United States.
In New York, he attended Lee Strasberg’s Actors Studio, performed a French poetry recital for American universities coast-to-coast, taught French to American French teachers at the University of Kentucky, DJed a radio Hit Parade show that he co-hosted with WMCA’s Joe O’Brien and, in the mid sixties, turned to journalism.
As foreign correspondent for two major European media outfits, he covered the United States in the sixties, the hippy phenomenon, the cold war, the Johnson-Kosygin meeting, most of the major race riots, two Conventions and the Apollo space flights.
In the early seventies, he assumed the position of public relations for Air France and in 1979, became the director of Sygma-USA, then one of the two leading photo-news agencies in the world.
A year later, Daniel started his own New York-based production company, producing, directing and writing more than 150 corporate videos, travel films, and documentaries.
