In addition to several rotations at private practices, he performed diagnostic evaluations at a children’s hospital in Plano, fit advanced hearing aids at a Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic, and worked side by side with an industrial audiologist at Lockheed Martin. During his time at the university, he also performed research observing the effects of ototoxic “ear poison” medication on hair cells in zebrafish models under Dr. Ernest Moore. While completing coursework, Daniel was also awarded the position of hearing aid technician at the University of North Texas audiology clinic. From this position Daniel gained valuable insight into administrative functions of the clinic while serving students, professors, and patients. Aside from clinical work, Daniel was the treasurer for the university’s chapter of the Student Academy of Audiology and has volunteered his time to the Texas Academy of Audiology. Professionally, Daniel is interested in both the private practice and medical aspects of audiology. Through gaining experience in these aspects under Dr. Marincovich and his team at Audiology Associates, Daniel aspires to grow clinically and professionally to better serve individuals with hearing, balance, and communication needs. Daniel continues his passion for education and helping others by teaching Judo alongside his shihan, or master instructor, of over 15 years. He holds a second-degree black belt in Judo and strives for balance of mind, body, and spirit.
