In 1998, Danny migrated to Florida, to pursue his graduate studies at the University of Miami. There, Danny was awarded his Master’s in Journalism and his Ph.D. in International Relations. His dissertation compared the coverage of international news in the United States and Brazil.

Professionally, Danny worked for the Miami Herald, in Florida, as a graphics professional, creating maps, charts, illustrations and special projects.
