Before working as a tour guide he worked on youth development at AIESEC, community affairs and corporate social responsibility at Microsoft. He lived and worked in Brussels, Warsaw, Istanbul and Cairo and travelled to over 25 countries on 4 continents. Daniel studied management and sustainable development and speaks English and bits of all the Latin languages.
