He was was born and raised in Huddinge, a suburb south of Sweden's capital Stockholm. He created a utility which, after various name and license changes, became known as curl, and is currently available under the MIT License.[citation needed]

For reasons that are not clear, Daniel is currently (as at February 2019) unable to travel to the USA, after problems travelling from Hawaii to San Francisco in June 2017.[citation needed]

In February 2019, Daniel joined WolfSSL, to offer commercial support for curl, and to work on curl as full-time as possible.[citation needed]
