Daniel Carrera

Growing up immersed in the vibrant musical landscape of California's Central Valley, Daniel has always been captivated by the power of language and its ability to transport us to different worlds, evoke emotions, and challenge our perspectives. His passion for storytelling has led him to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Fresno State, where he delved into the intricate relationship between music and literature. While his musical training has provided him with a deep understanding of rhythm, harmony, and structure, his true calling lies in the written word. During his undergraduate studies, he discovered the transformative power of creative writing, and has since dedicated himself to honing his craft as a storyteller. Daniel is currently enrolled at Reedley College, where he is pursuing an English Creative Writing certificate to further develop his skills and prepare for graduate studies.
