Daniel Reyes

Chief Executive Officer

Who is Daniel Reyes? I launched #DoTheDaniel with the intention of creating a space for real content working with real people.

With a degree in Communications from Carleton University, I developed my experience in the world of marketing before blogging full time. I am an eternal student who is always trying to learn about the ever-changing world we occupy online and thrive in. 

As CEO of the business, a traveler at heart, foodie, and many other things, I continue to be an advocate of an industry we now call home.

I could never have created a successful business without the inspiration and support of my husband, Julio Reyes of and business partner Catherine Sugrue. An avid coffee drinker, lover of new experiences, supporter of good people, and all around dork who never takes himself too seriously… I like to believe that our success is based on the fact that we give you truest selves every day.

After years of travelling and living in numerous different countries all over the world, I now call Toronto my home.

As you can see I have a love for sports, but I’m also into fashion, music, novels/novel writing, social media and FOOD!!! I’m experienced in social media account development and management. Fun fact: I took on my first Twitter account management opportunity at the age of 15, for Toronto Entertainment Host Devante Burey (BestFan TV). I’m very passionate about my life endeavours. The cause for my inspiration? Living in Toronto! It’s such a booming and lively environment, it just screams, “Take on the world!” I’m very excited to see Do The Daniel do just that! Although I try to be the best I can be in every aspect of my life, I feel like no one truly ever reaches their full potential. There’s always more to learn, and room to grow and improve. I hope I never stop seeking the better half of myself.

Vancouver Contributor
Who is Joshua Langston? 
But first, coffee. I’m Joshua [or Josh – I don’t really care which people call me] and I wear a ton of hats (figuratively) and shoes (literally – I’m a shoe whisperer). If I listed off the wide array of things I do…I think I would sound like Daenerys Targaryen (insert 500 titles here), so let’s simplify it for now. I’m a fashion, lifestyle and travel writer, but I’ve worked in several facets of the industry including styling, fashion show production, content creation and PR. My love for the fashion industry started as a kid, watching Jenie Becker on Fashion TV. Growing up, my dad worked in Film & TV my whole life, so I spent a lot of time hanging out on Movie and TV show sets. I would often sneak off to the wardrobe trailers and hangout with the wardrobe costumers, playing amongst the racks of clothes. I thought they were the coolest people in the world, they literally transformed people and made magic. I love to travel and explore new continents, countries and cities and really immerse myself in the culture (and the food, obviously).
Music is also a huge part of my life, and I’m an avid festival goer, having gone to music festivals on 3 continents so far [North America, Europe and Africa]. When I’m not attending events, travelling or working, I can likely be found face-planted in a large bowl of Ramen, playing “imaginary-shopping-cart” on one of my [several] favourite shopping apps. I have been featured in The Vancouver Sun, FASHION Magazine, WWD [What they are wearing – New York Fashion Week] and WGSN to name a few.  I strongly believe that almost anything can be fixed with pizza. I’m excited to be part of the DoTheDaniel team representing the West Coast, and can’t wait to share more with you soon.
