Daniel Mart is someone who ever since he was little was always trying to explore new ways to express himself. At a young age, he tried to do so through painting and poetry. Although he did enjoy doing that, it never brought him the satisfaction that he sought. At the age of 8, Daniel got his first taste of the acting world when he received the role of a reindeer during his school's Christmas production "The Polar Express". Although he enjoyed the experience, he wouldn't come back to acting until he was 13 years old when his mom enrolled him in an acting summer camp at the University of Miami. Afterwards, he continued to peruse acting by taking classes and eventually interning at Area Stage Company as a stage hand for some of their shows; however, he left due to personal reasons. Daniel then went on to be a student intern at Florida International University's Theater Department under the guidance of Chris Gosslin, Geordan Gottlieb, BJ Duncan, and Tony Galaska. After graduating from Miami Killian Senior High, he decided to attend Miami Dade College where he was able to perform in many of their plays including Church and State, Warner Bros., and Luna Gale. Thanks to his professor Joshua Braun, Daniel was able to better grasp what he truly wanted to do as an actor. Afterwards, he went went back to FIU to further his expand his craft.
Since breaking into the film industry with Cheese vs Pepperoni (2013), he has acted in several local South Florida short films, most notably Sick Minded (2019) and Lights, Camera, Disaster! (2019). Aside from short films, Daniel has also made appearances in some local web series and feature films such as Slimey (2021) and Treach (2020) respectively. He has also gone on to frequently collaborate with Jace Elton on projects such as S.H.E. (2021) and Electric Feel (2020) and Alejo Vega on Wiseguys vs Aliens (2022) and Hand of the Pharaohs (2020).
In an attempt to expand his talents, Daniel started his own interview show aptly called An Interview With (2016). After having been inspired by many of the people he worked with, he began creating his own content with the first of these being his directorial debut The Deal (2019). Afterwards, he produced and starred in Churi (2019). Since then, under his production company DMart Productions, he has been attached to direct, write, and/or produce several project including Unwritten (202), Silent Locale Cinematics (2018), Drew (2020), Corner (2021), and Spending Some Time Together (2021).
Due to his hard work in the industry he has been nominated and won several awards. Some of his more notable nominations includes Best Student Film for Corner at the Treasure Coast International Festival and Best Kill, Decoration, and Scare for Quince at Ghastly Pumpkin Awards Film Festival. Some of his more notable wins includes Best Student Narrative for Corner at Festival Angaelica, Best Short for Corner at Flix Reps Festival, Outstanding Director for Corner at Palm Beach Film Festival, and Best Horror for Quince at Ghastly Pumpkin Awards Film Festival.

He began acting at Area Stage Company, the same theater company that Oscar Isaac initially started acting under. After a little over a year, he was hired as an intern for them. Although Daniel initially liked the opportunity, he became disillusioned due to how the company was being ran; most notably because of how management treated their staff and students.
Has considered publishing a poetry book with poems that he has written.
