Born and raised in Germany, close to Frankfurt, his passion for football began at a very early age. He made most of his earliest friendships through football.
After graduating from University, Daniel went on to work at Lufthansa where he spent 3 years forging lasting relationships. During his time there his passion for football, together with the help of a few friends, led to the founding of the Lufthansa Football Club. After picking up momentum they invented the World Aviation Football Cup with 32 teams from around the world participating, and drawing the attention of eventual patrons such as Manuel Neuer.
Daniel’s passion for meeting new people on and off the field and sharing a few drinks after a good match was never forgotten. The infamous ¨3rd Half¨ is every pick-up footballer’s favorite part of the game, and Daniel was no exception.
After moving to Barcelona, Daniel quickly realized that he had no one to play football with. He craved the smell for the pitch, the companionship surrounding the game, the teamwork, the laughs, and most importantly, the lasting friendships that come with it all. After organizing matches amongst friends and slowly growing a community of players and organizers, Daniel saw the opportunity to make his dream of building a meaningful community.
When not building CeleBreak, he enjoys reading books, listening to Podcasts, going for runs in natures, and spending time with his 2 kids.
