This is where thoughts become things.

Hi, I'm Daniela. Welcome to my personal lair on the Internet. This is where I write about storytelling, activism, technology and pop culture. Sometimes I post videos. I update my lair when the mood strikes me. Follow me on Twitter for daily updates (@dcap).


Daniela Capistrano at All Points West '08

Since 2005, I have been a writer, multiplatform producer, shooter and editor. I have freelanced for several networks, including Bravo, Discovery and A&E.

While working at MTV News from 2006 – 2009, I interviewed Janelle Monae, The Dodos, Dragons of Zynth, Afrika Bambaataa, Ebony Bones, Ra Ra Riot, Broken Social Scene, Noisettes, writer/producer Jonathan Ames, Trace Magazine founder Claude Grunitzky, “Afro-Punk” director James Spooner and other inspiring folks.

After three years of sharing mind blowing experiences with an amazing team, I decided to form my own LLC to consult with a variety of companies and focus on my own creative goals.


I still enjoy blogging, podcasting and all forms of digital production (both for fun and for my employers). I am an early adopter, adept at incorporating social media tools into my home and work environment.
