What is #DoTheDaniel? It’s the enthusiasm and ability to love what we do while providing our audience with education, entertainment and the ability to join us on our adventures around the world.

Daniel Reyes

CEO & Founder

With staff around the world, we aim to create engaging content on a daily basis with contributors in Canada and the United Kingdom. Topics including (but not limited to) Health, Family, Food, Travel & Lifestyle help to provide a well rounded expertise to what we create.

We are an ever growing family with new members being added to the team around the world as we continue to expand.

When you ask me about what this site is all about, it’s simple. It’s what, in my opinion, people want. They want a conversation, not a lecture.

Ottawa Contributor
So who is Kristina Emmerson? I am an archaeologist who specializes in Paleopathology, living in Ottawa. I am a frequent guest lecturer in my subject for Carleton University and a fierce advocate for fostering and safeguarding the field of Humanities. I would also describe myself as an ‘outgoing introvert.’

Academic trappings aside, I am also: a proud and unabashed nerd, who enjoys anything related to Star Wars, horror films and comics of all kinds, a yoga and cardio enthusiast, coffee and tea snob/guzzler, an experimenter in beauty products both high and low end, a devourer of books, an adventurer, a sarcastic and dark humoured individual that is also the biggest animal lover going. If I could pet all of the dogs ever, I would never have a bad day in my life.

A personal philosophy of mine has always been “sing your song, dance your dance and tell your tale.” I suppose for the Do The Daniel family I would strive to reach anyone that may be holding back on trying new things due to shyness or the possibility of failing. Let’s go on an adventure together and let our geek flags fly! 


Lesli Fairweather
Los Angeles Contributor
Who is Lesli Fairweather? I’m fashion obsessed, but not in the traditionally way. Don’t bother quizzing me on designers and when the skinny jean made its first appearance. I love street fashion and exploring how pop culture and fashion intersect all over the world. My life usually revolves around finding great restaurants, art, music and fitness! 
Living in LA for 2 years now, some have congratulated me on making it in this city. But in truth, Los Angeles is an amazing place to live, and though moving here alone was difficult at the beginning, I’ve gotten my footing and I’m moving full speed ahead!
