After spending six months back in the Cleveland area with his beloved father before his passing ….Daniel decided to leave the “BIG “ city and move back to his home state of Ohio and home town of Wakeman to begin a new chapter and challenge in his live. Looking for a place to fit in Daniel returned and decided the best way yo share his talents and passion was to open his own flower shop “Danielion…Ideals that BLOOM” on historic US Rt 20 in his hometown. Still knowing that that was just a “home base “ he and his team travel where ever the client needs them …. most recently to Miami Florida , Fort Wayne Indiana , and several times a year back to Chicago. Currently working on two large projects … one near Boston and one in California the theme of todays presentation is truly Daniel life!!!!
