Daniel DiGriz

Daniel lives immersed in art and business.


Daniel is a guitar player focused on composition, improvisation, and music theory. He favors Marshall sounds and the pre-1985 classic rock songbook.


Daniel writes novel-length stories. He is currently banging out an autobiographical coming-of-age novel set in Appalachia. He also writes genre fiction.

Martial Arts

Daniel studies traditional martial arts. A devotee of Japanese & Okinawan disciplines, he occasionally competes in tournaments and exhibitions.


Daniel is engaged in business as an art form. He is specifically involved in brand storytelling & development, the art of sales, and audience engagement.

Visual Art

Daniel is a collector of original paintings that include mid-century, surrealist, and (English) Northern school works from legacy and living artists.


Daniel is an enthusiastic theatre-goer. He lives in New York, where access to Broadway and off-Broadway plays is ingrained and attendance routine.


Daniel likes and reads books. He is picky but not snobby, broad-ranging but knows what he likes, and always has several books going at once.


Daniel has a smattering of other art interests he can only pursue sporadically—from languages to boating, film, cryptography, and dance.

Daniel DiGriz is a serial entrepreneur, startup founder, and investor in numerous businesses and asset growth opportunities. By trade, he is a sales improvement consultant, brand storyteller, enterprise evangelist, and community organizer for business.

Daniel’s companies include MadPipe® which puts good ideas in front of a broader market with sales-aligned marketing, brand messaging, and campaign direction. And Free Agent Source, Inc.—the consulting firm that delivers enterprise projects through direct relationships with consultants.

Virtual Happy Hour

For an hour every month on Zoom, Daniel hosts an intimate happy hour for colleagues from all walks of life to facilitate new friendships between people not previously introduced, deepen existing ones, and enjoy hearing about one another's aspirations, victories, and personal passions. Artists, salespeople, IT consultants, entrepreneurs, writers, and others of all demographics routinely join. If you and Daniel work or learn together or otherwise collaborate in some way, you may eventually get an invitation but speak up if you want to jump the line. 🙂
