Danielle was born in a New York suburb named after Washington Irving, and one of her earliest memories is of her mother directing a production of "Sleepy Hollow" in her basement for the PTA Gala. She thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bagels, and thus began her obsession with drama and storytelling. She has subsequently tread the boards at theaters in New York, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Illinois, Oregon, London, and now California. Danielle brings to ToyTalk a fascination with the intersection of language, art and technology, and her newfound talent for discovering excellent San Francisco ramen joints. She holds a B.A. from Yale University and M.F.A. from the American Conservatory Theatre.
