Daniel K. Isaac* was born and raised in Southern California. He can almost stand on a surf board, and occasionally calls people ‘dude.’ While in fifth grade, his mother heard a story about a preacher who went numb with stage fright and was escorted off the stage. Daniel was promptly signed up for Grace Korean Church's theatre troupe and he's been an actor ever since. After receiving his Bachelor's in Theatre from UC San Diego, Daniel moved to New York City where he's been seen on small and large screens and stages.

As a playwright, Daniel is a member of Page73’s Interstate 73, Ensemble Studio Theatre’s Youngblood, and a Lambda Literary Playwriting Fellow.
