Daniel is the founder of The Botanical Institute. He has a Master of Science in Herbal Medicine (with a focus on herbal formulation) from the Maryland University of Integrative Health.

His passion is in finding the intersection between traditional herbal usage and modern scientific research. It may seem shocking, but oftentimes ancient man has a better understanding of how herbal medicine works than modern-day researchers! His goal is to thread the needle between traditional knowledge and modern breakthroughs.

When Daniel is not reading and writing about herbal medicine, he enjoys spending time with his wife Rachel and three young daughters (Gwen, Vivian, and Franklyn). He lives on an organic herb farm where he has unlimited access to play & experiment with herbs.
