"Un hermano educado from the heart of LA; he can write you a poem but also spit on your face."
Daniel Arellano was born and raised in South Los Angeles, California. He is the youngest of 3 siblings with parents both from Mexico. He attended 32nd St. Performing Arts Magnet School, where he first got introduced to the creative arts & performance. He then attended Montebello High School to continue his athletic pursuits and later graduated from Loyola Marymount University as a student-athlete. While possessing an unsettling curiosity that he felt was fading working in an office, he has traveled to multiple countries, indulged in many cultures, has acquired too many hobbies, and simply enjoys being a student in what he calls this video game of life.
With cinema, he aspires and continues to work with direction from creative individuals to tell thought-provoking and life-changing stories. His own life has been influenced by some of the greatest stories & storytellers and now aims to do the same.
Recently, he’s just finished filming a campaign product project for PILLZ, Inc. He’s co-starred in a student thesis film that will be premiering at the Newport Beach Film Festival this October. And has worked on various student projects taking him back to his cultural roots in South, LA - serving as a reminder the importance of bringing to light the voices of minority communities.
