Daniel is originally from Puerto Rico and served in the United States Navy for ten years as an aircraft mechanic. He spent three tours in Afghanistan, two tours in Iraq and two tours in Africa. Following service in the Navy, Daniel joined the Florida Air National Guard to continue serving our country. In 2017, he was sent to Florida to provide logistics support following Hurricane Irma. After his experience in the military and with natural disasters specifically, Daniel noticed the importance of a reliable source of energy. In fact, the best backup system generators and batteries can save lives in the field of combat along with their utility following natural disasters. That thought is where Novo Batteries was born. Daniel hopes to develop new, efficient, and effective cell batteries and generators for the defense of our country and emergency response to natural disasters.
