Daniel is a first-generation immigrant from Guangzhou, China. He graduated from Sun Yat-Sen University of Medical Sciences and was a doctor before he immigrated to the United States over 35 years ago. He has worked in the cemetery industry for almost 32 years.

Daniel started his career in 1989 as a telemarketer and was promoted to sales manager after five years.
