Off the Job

Outside of the office, you will often find Daniel hobbling around a basketball court or looking for his lost golf ball. In their spare time, Daniel and his wife enjoy getaways to wineries (her) and roller coasters (him). Dessert is Daniel’s favorite meal of the day. He often prefers to watch the movie than read the book.
