A big part of my life, since my teens, has revolved around music and I’ve written and recorded a lot of material. Each week, I’ll spotlight a song from my arsenal and give you some background info, mood and style. I’ll attach either a Soundcloud link or a video.
If you like what you hear, links for Spotify and Apple Music will also be provided, so you could follow me on those.

Welcome to Be a Hero Creative’s blog. I am your host Daniel and I will be sharing many things with you here. To really understand what this blog is about, you have to know a few things about me.
I’ve been making music since I got my first guitar at the age of 13. While trying to “make it” in the music industry, I had to learn many things. I worked as a buyer and an assistant manager in record stores, a sound engineer, a freelance graphic designer, a DJ, a cook and a language teacher. I studied music and sound engineering, taught myself graphic design, got a degree in Culinary Arts and a certificate in Front-End Web Development.
I’ve lived in five countries and speak three languages. I believe in doing things with passion and perseverance. I think if you love something or someone, you should be willing to give up everything for them. I love to eat, to travel, to try new things and I have a fascination with learning.
At 45 years old, I like to say that I’m just getting started. I plan on living a very long time because there are just too many things left for me to do. I have a lust for life, I love unconditionally and I believe that we all have to teach what we’ve learned at some point in our lives.
That’s what this blog is about. I will share my music, my graphic work, my favorite recipes, my thoughts, my passions and my life advice. I think being happy is great, but being fulfilled is better!
Hope my posts will inspire, motivate you and help you, even if just a little bit, to become a better you.
