In April 2011, Daniel announced that he was leaving Tiny Speck to join as co-founder of Milk with Kevin Rose.

Since leaving Google Ventures, Daniel went on to become the director of design at Resolve to Save Lives, an organization that aims to reduce the number of people dying from heart disease and stroke in low and middle income countries. Daniel runs product and design in their digital product initiatives.
