Daniel Augustin

Daniel Augustin is a South Florida born actor, musician and film maker. Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, FL Daniel began performing and honing his musical talent at the age of 10 as a member of his church’s gospel choir. He began to fall in love with music but It wasn’t until he stepped away to make music on his own one day did he finally begin to find himself in the music.

In High School Daniel focused his energy on Sports, Improvisational Acting, and Music. He soon became a captain for both the Basketball, and Football teams, Vice President of the schools’ state nominated, and award-winning choir ensemble, and Thespian participant in the State of Florida competitions. He continued in his passions while attending college by accepting a full athletic scholarship to play collegiate football, and run Track & Field. Despite his focus being on athletics, he studied music and sang in the schools’ Choir Ensemble at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. 

Daniel has continued to mature while making rounds nationally in shows performing his music, acting in feature films, as well as now film making as an editor, cinematographer, and writer. “I plan on connecting the dots that align my stars,” he said. I feel like I’ve learned everything that I’ve learned for the right reasons. I don’t know another artist who could film, edit, and produce their own videos, & films. I didn’t plan on being this hands-on back when I was just singing Tenor in my church and high school choirs, but now I’m taking control of my destiny. I never had a Damon Dash, or a mentor come in and change my life for me. Whenever I look up to people I admire them, study them, and discipline myself to do whatever's necessary like they had to. It's all about the big picture with me.”
