Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode, Rich and cohosts Joe Ayler and Julia Chang have a conversation with Daniel Hess.

Daniel is a filmmaker and writer from Baltimore, Maryland. Born with a condition known as aortic valve stenosis, Daniel found an early calling in the catharsis of creativity. He lost his cousin/best friend to cystic fibrosis when he was 10 and ever since has felt a deeper calling in life. Over the years, Daniel has produced numerous award-winning short films and self-published two books (Just a Boy Blaming Himself and Focus Puller - his debut novel). In January 2022, Daniel underwent successful open heart surgery to correct his birth defect.

Thank you to Daniel Hess for the conversation. Here are some links for Daniel:
