He was in house management at the Alley Theatre, Houston, from 1987 – 1990, and has had a handful of Master-of-Ceremonies gigs and indie video work since then. Joe and wife, Kyra, live in Galveston, TX; empty-nesters, they both work for the Texas NeuroAIDS Research Center at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Joe is a licensed mental health professional with 20+ years’ experience and maintains a part-time private psychotherapy practice on the island. More recently, he completed his PhD in Cognition & Instruction Psychology, and is developing a program of research into mixed reality technology applied to self-directed learning in cultural heritage institutions.

This is Daniel's 8th production at Purple Box Theater. He is the only returning cast member of the first production of The 6th Trumpet that was done 10 years ago (which was also his first). The only difference is this time he's on the side of the angels. He was a theatre major from San Jac and has done numerous plays in community theatres around the Houston area. Daniel would like to thank Cathy for allowing him to come back and be a part of this production after going on a 2 year hiatus thanks due to Covid.

We live in a city created by human hands. It is the seen world. A world where belief is measured by that which is concrete. But it's not real. There is the hidden city that cannot be seen without understanding. It's a metropolis inhabited by angels and devils. It's a dark city. A city of beings designed to pick up after humanity's messes - or create them. 

This is the story of Archie, an angel and private eye. At one time, Archie was an idealistic heavenly agent. He was an angel of death, the sword of God's judgment, the protection of God's people. However, thousands of years of witnessing man's inhumanity to man left Archie jaded, hard-boiled and tough as nails. He walked away and never looked back. But God, the Boss, has a way of gumming up the works. When the sixth trumpet, the harbinger of Armageddon on Earth, is stolen, the angelic host turns to Archie to get it back before humanity is lost for eternity.

The Sixth Trumpet takes place in Archie's world, a world that mirrors the 30's and 40's - where archangels keep the peace, devils make up the syndicate and the rest of the riff raff are just a bunch of mooks trying to help mankind make ends meet. And maybe, if you're lucky, a ray of sunshine can break through the steel and concrete canyons of Angel City, and even a tough guy like Archie can discover there's always hope.

After the fifth trumpet blast, the sixth one sounds.[11] This is the "second woe", where four angels are released from their binds in the "great river Euphrates". They command a force of two-hundred million mounted troops whose horses exude plagues of fire, smoke, and brimstone from their mouths. The mounted horsemen wore breastplates with the color of fire, hyacinth, and brimstone. The horses are with lion's head and their tails, as well, are like a serpent with a head. The plagues exuding from the horses will kill a third of all mankind.[12]​
