Danyelle was born and raised in Pontotoc, Mississippi. In 2013, the Army moved him and his family to Anchorage (Fort Richardson).
Danyelle soon had a choice to make: get sent to a new duty station, or retire from the Army and stay in Alaska. After consulting with his family he chose the latter; deciding to take root in the 49th State. About a month after his retirement he started working to turn his hobby into a full-time gig, and committed to opening QUAKE! Brewing Company. In the summer of 2017 Danyelle finally open QUAKE!
Danyelle is an educator as well. He substitute teaches for the Anchorage School District and is one examination away from his Alaska teaching certificate; where he will head up a band, orchestra, or other music program in the ASD.
Danyelle has been married to his lovely bride, Keiba, for 20 years. They have two sons who attend school in Eagle River, Orion and Noah.
