Daniel is one of the newest additions to the Thiesen Dueker Group, beginning his career in finance as an analyst for the team. He graduated with honors from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2020 as a psychology and sociology double major before moving back to the Central Valley. His interest in finance began from handling the bookkeeping for his family’s business. Learning of the benefits and opportunities that come with running a business, he became fixated on how to translate this knowledge into helping others reach their financial goals. He firmly believes financial freedom is the foundation to living a fulfilling life and has a passion to help others achieve this. When not assisting the team, Daniel enjoys learning about other cultures making it a requirement to visit a new country every year. He also spends his time teaching and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and hopes to one day run his own academy.
