Senior Development Manager
Turning client dreams into a reality is just what this AOA team member does. As a 30-year architecture veteran, Daniel exists in the space where creative worlds meet structural reality; he helps clients create the construction behind the concept – passion, meet sensible skills and architectural planning!
At AOA, Daniel has led efforts for Baha Mar at the Grand Hyatt, assisting in the 800-room project, convention center, primary on-property restaurant and bar, and many more luxury resort additions. This high-class hotel, featuring stunning beach views, an epic selection of pools, and unforgettable culinary offerings was built, in part, by Daniel’s keen eye for detail and problem-solving abilities.
From there, David moved on to St. Thomas to lead Wyndham's St. Thomas Margaritaville Hillside buildings (267 rooms), the Marketplace, Spa, and Hillside Pool. The songs and stories of the Virgin Islands filtered through every step of this St. Thomas project, bringing the spirit of the summer to each guest stay. David is proud to say that he contributed to every fringe of palm tree and margarita-sippin’ experience at the resort.
Daniel’s career has afforded him the skills to communicate with clients, develop effective solutions, and execute them beautifully. His work has also taken him to luxury leisure locations like the Ginn Sur Mer in the Bahamas, international experiences in Luxury Collection Paracas and Urubamba, and several domestic projects in California and beyond; he’s communicated with clients across cultural distinctions, complex problems, and so much more.
And best of all, Daniel is enthusiastic about all things AOA. That enthusiasm is what drives his make-things-happen passion. Mixed in with his real world awareness and amazing project experience, David is among AOA’s best dreamers and doers. For David, reality is what drives a project’s success.
