Daniel works in close contact with Costa Rica and Panama counterparts to strengthen their advocacy capacities. He has developed his work experience in international cooperation, specifically in managing programs on democracy, human rights, and governance (DRG).

He also worked with the International Republican Institute (IRI) on projects related to anti-corruption and open government strategies, including actions with the National Assembly, the justice system, and transparent public contracting processes, as well as with civil society actors living in authoritarian regimes or closed civic spaces.
In addition to his work at Race and Equality, he is a human rights activist for the LGBTQ+ population in Panama and a researcher on democracy, human migration, and intersectionality. Daniel holds a B.A in International Relations from the University of Panama and is a graduate of the Masters in Conflict Resolution, Peace, and Development from the United Nations University for Peace.
