Daniel Pinder was raised in the small town of Fargo, North Dakota where he participated in high level ice hockey and skateboarding. It wasn't till after graduating high school that Daniel pursued his acting career in Minneapolis and soon after made his way onto the Chicago scene.
In 2014 Pinder had his breakthrough performance as the role of Michael in the first season of Dick Wolf's hit drama Chicago PD on NBC. From his recognition of playing a skateboard punk thief on Chicago PD, Daniel was asked to bring his talent and expertise to the Warner Bros production 'We Are Your Friends' with Zac Efron to help with skateboarding in the film. Recently Daniel has been cast in multiple high magnitude films including; 'Lincoln Road' alongside UFC star Amanda Nunes, 'Soul Drift' and the mega franchise "Garrison 7: The Fallen" of Gena8 Studios Australia.
