Daril hails from a group of religious extremists intent on sheltering themselves from the evil influence of the world. For the first 17 years of his life, he openly condemned movies, television, sports, and virtually everything else that could be put into the category of “Fun Childhood Memories.” Desperate to escape this soul-sucking paradigm, he enlisted in the Army as a combat medic in October of 2005, and (after enduring a brief, yet intense, existential crisis) he resigned his position as the youngest licensed minister in aforementioned cult.
Three years later, Daril was named “Region III Soldier of the Year” and, ignoring the overwhelming guilt from his childhood, attended the movies for the first time. In 2011, he represented the State of Tennessee as “Non Commissioned Officer of the Year” and began a ridiculous new passion: screenwriting.
After an honorable discharge from the Army in July 2014, Daril moved to Los Angeles to attend LMU’s Screenwriting MFA program, and during the second year of the program, he launched his career as the creator, writer, and actor of the Netflix original series The Green Beret’s Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse (exec produced by Matt Damon and Peter Berg).
Daril is currently represented by Eric Williams at Zero Gravity Management:
