Meet Daniel Zemeida

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daniel Zemeida.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Daniel. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Some people find their passion along the way, others are born to perform. I got my big break in 7th grade when I got put on the “Morning Announcement Broadcasting Team”. After that, I never looked back. High school is when I began to hone my craft with Theatre; Shakespeare you know how it goes. It wasn’t until College that I finally stepped in front of the camera. At ASU, I worked with incredible artists creating innovative & compelling content. But everything changed when I went to work for Disney; Mickey-Mouse, The Big-Cheese. My time at Disney was short, but the memories and experiences will last forever; it’s cheesy but it’s a pretty magical place. Overall, working for Disney gave me the reassurance I needed to commit fully to the entertainment industry. Since Disney, I moved to LA and I’ve been performing. Stay tuned, the next chapter of my life is just getting started.

Has it been a smooth road?
My journey has been full of twists and turns. Leaving Arizona was my first real challenge. I knew someday I’d have to pack up and leave home, but it wasn’t easy. After I left AZ to work for Disney in Orlando, Florida I haven’t stopped moving. I once feared picking up and starting over, but now I embrace it. I’ve learned when you leave home it’s like leaving your community, but it’s not often in life you’re given an opportunity to find a new one.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
As an actor, I believe you pull inspiration from your life. That’s why I am always seeking new adventures. From attending Acting school TO working for Disney, I’m just getting things started. Now I specialize in Comedic & Dramatic acting, Improv, and Modeling. Common skills you’ll find in an Actor; however what sets me apart is my personality. I’m always professional on set, but making some friends and having a little fun along the way are the reasons I love to do this job.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In the next 5-10 years, I see myself growing as an Artist & expanding my social net. During the recent world events, I’ve taken a step back to look at what the future might be like. I think this is a perfect time to invest in myself. By setting daily goals and challenging myself to expand my mind, I see myself growing as both an artist and a person. While still reaching out & collaborating with artists to create fun, imaginative, and compelling content.
