As a recipient of the inaugural NBC FEMALE FORWARD program, Daniela recently helmed an episode of the primetime network show “Chicago Med”, which aired to an enthusiastic audience of executives and fans alike.

Daniela's first auteur feature film, "The Blackout", is now entering the festival circuit while "Mother of Mist" and a few other projects are in development, including a coveted biopic about Brazilian iconic pop-star, Xuxa.

Some of Daniela’s previous work includes the fiction short "When We Were in Nice", written by renowned playwright Dan O'Brien; the short doc "On the Brink", about acclaimed choreographer Ryan Heffington; the docu-webseries "Growing Up Derby" (about a Junior Roller Derby League) and "Inspiring Women" series.

Originally from Argentina, Daniela worked her way up from P.A. to writer/director/producer, collaborating along the way with a myriad of industry heavyweights such as Alexander Payne, Martin Scorsese, Peter Bogdanovich, David E. Kelley, the Weitz brothers, Forest Whitaker and Tony Scott. In 2010, she co-directed "Qualquer Gato Vira-Lata" for Buena Vista International, which opened wide in Brazil to unprecedented box office success. Daniela was then one of six hispanic filmmakers at the helm of "Blue Lips", highlighted by Cannes’ Cinefondation head Georges Goldenstern at Ventana Sur – Latin America’s biggest film market in 2012. The following year, Daniela was awarded with the NBC/Universal Directing Fellowship and appointed to the USA Network show "Royal Pains." That’s how she began her journey into episodic television, where she looks to represent the latinx community to the best of her abilities.

Daniela lives in Los Angeles and is repped by Paradigm Agency.
