Daniel Ortiz was born in Malaga in a town called Estepona. His magic journey started at 4 years of age thanks to a box of tricks given to him by his father. When he was 12, he visited the magic circle in Seville and experienced the magic of Mario the Magician who would later become his mentor. His mentors and primary influences come from first class artists such as Juan Escolano, Mago Migue, Juan Tamariz, and Lennart Green. All played their part in influencing his approach to magic.
