Daniel demonstrated a combination of creativity and exuberance from his childhood. He always had a good sense of humor but as he grew up, it transformed into a sophisticated wit. His friend Jerry Purpdrank, who was already a popular Viner, suggested to Dan that he should try out the platform.

On May 24, 2013, he created his Vine account and posted four videos on his first day. It did not take him long to garner a large audience due to his comedic timing, pop-culture references, and the ability to tell a complete story within the constraint of only six seconds. He had over a million followers when Vine shut down for good in 2016.

Many of his collaborators, including Logan and Jake Paul, Anwar Jibawi, and Nik Keswani, managed to make a successful transition to YouTube. However, Dan picked Instagram. He became more active on the platform, uploading his content there. The fact that many of his fans on Vine followed him on Instagram as well helped him in those early months.

These days, each of his comedy uploads attracts hundreds of thousands of views. Moreover, In 2014, Dan appeared as himself in the video project ‘Do It for the Vine’. A year later, he debuted as an actor in Nicolas Wendl’s video short ‘Black Woman’.
