Born to a single African-American mother and a Caucasian father, Daniel was born with straight hair and fair skin. Raised only in a Black culture, he identified himself as a Black Man even though no one saw him as such. That's when he realized he had a gift. He could assume any identity he wanted to. He was a chameleon. As a young teen, he set out on a journey to find the father who never knew he existed - and the White part of his heritage - while navigating himself through a life of hardships. Born poor, his family never had much. Living in low-income housing, he was not afforded the finest education. And homeless at age seventeen and trapped in Los Angeles, a thousand miles from his Denver home, he learned to survive in the streets. And he fought his way out. Despite his triumphs, there was one thing that had managed to elude him for years...finding his father. When it finally happened, it wasn't the reunion he'd ever expected.
