Danny is a lifelong South Floridian and has lived in West Palm Beach since 2008. He serves as our worship and music director. While Danny’s been playing guitar and writing music since the fifth grade, his passion to write music for the church really developed after assuming his role at Providencia WPB. This lead to a dream that has since developed into Paradise Hymns; Providencia WPB's worship and music collective. Danny’s other passion for home brewing began in January of 2017 and he’s been honing his “craft” ever since. His alma mater is Palm Beach State College, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in business management, but he's been a diehard Florida Gator fan since birth. Outside of playing music, brewing up a new concoction or watching Gator sports, he spends his time enjoying his wife Stephanie, son Elijah and yellow lab Billy.
