Daniel DiMarino grew up in the Chester County Suburbs outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His aptitude for music creation took the stage at age eight when he wrote his first orchestral piece and fell in love with the art of composition.

Daniel was selected as the youth winner of the Marvin Hamlisch Film Scoring Contest in 2018. He became very passionate about film scoring and music production after winning this award. An instrumentalist as well, Daniel completed his Bachelor's degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music in violin performance and music composition. While studying at the institute, Daniel broadened his musical palette and began composing and producing in a variety of styles and genres. He wrote tracks for friends and family members for ice skating and gymnastics routines, scored promotional videos, added music to social media content, and began building a portfolio of work.

Daniel served as a composer in residence for the Canton Youth Symphony during the 2021-2022 season and had his work, Endlight, premiered at the 2022 spring concert. He also was selected to arrange "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" for the Rocky Ridge Music Gala as part of a video promotional effort.


Daniel went on to study film scoring at Jacobs School of Music and completed a year of studies with Professors Larry Groupe and Steven Wayne Thomas. He freelances as a music producer and composer and currently completes contract work for Duolingo's music course, which is under development. He lives in Bloomington, IN with his wife, Katie, who is also a violinist and musician, as well as an educator and academic interventionist.

Daniel enjoys whiskey and wine, cooking, watching debates on YouTube, and studying biblical theology.
