Danny is an American/Turkish music therapist living in Istanbul. He was born in Los Angeles, and later graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Therapy. He has since been living in Istanbul, working with child growth and development, psychiatric health, and trauma rehabilitation for refugees. He has facilitated workshops across Turkey at various universities, symposiums and festivals, and is an internationally published author.
In his clinical work, Danny uses his extensive musical knowledge across a wide range of instruments, including the guitar, percussion, piano, drums, harmonica, vocals, ney, saz and oud. He is fascinated by the effects of music on human behavior, and tries to build positive relationships through musical interactions. He is inspired by those he works with, as he sees again each day the powerful impacts music can have.
He is currently working on an album for his upcoming music project, DamacanA.
