Dharma: What is your Dharma?
Daniel: We are dedicated to promoting empowerment and enrichment of cultural identity and diversity.
Dharma: What is your favorite quote?
Daniel: "Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events, small minds talk about people" - Eleanor Roosevelt
Dharma: Do you feel called to support brands and products that help the less fortunate?
Daniel: Yes, of course! I believe we have to figure out ways to support our communities whether by large or small contributions.
Dharma: What is your favorite thing about eyewear as an accessory or necessity (sunglasses or optical)?
Daniel: My glasses are almost an extension of my body as it portrays my personality. And of course they complete an outfit.
Dharma: Out of the Dharma Co. collection, which pair do you covet most?
Daniel: Nirvana, Hands down. As you can see I am sporting the glasses now. I love the fact that the frame color is close to my skin tone and the frames compliment the shape of my face. I actually wear them daily in comparison to the other frames that I own. And I cannot tell you... So many people have stopped me to ask where I bought them from. Of course shouting out Dharma Co. has become a part of my regular routine.
