Daniel owns an advertising/design firm in Denver, CO (Digabyte Music and Design), and composes, records, and performs music across the US. Daniel also designs and restores residential and commercial spaces. Beahm was rarely scene without a video camera during his formative years and into high school. During college, he grew his interest in film and production by composing soundtracks and scores for friends making independent films, as well as by being involved in the production side of these projects. Post graduation (with focus in biology, design, and philosophy), Daniel’s first appointment was as a designer for the world-renowned Blenko Glass in W.V. After that, Beahm started his own design company in Columbus, OH, where he met his wife, Erika Randall. Over the years, Beahm continued to make frequent trips to Los Angeles, helping friends with various tasks in a myriad of independent productions. Most recently Daniel moved to Denver, CO, where he continues to run his design/advertising company focusing on motion, print, and web media, as well as growing his record label while writing, recording and performing music of his own.
