Daniel Neemann Skated Into a Creative Career as a Photographer

You can find art all over town -- not just on gallery walls. In this series, we'll be looking at some of the local artists who serve up their work in coffeehouses and other non-gallery businesses around town.

Daniel Neeman wakes up early so he can open the Tattered Covered in LoDo, where he passes the morning as a barista. At 2 p.m. he grabs his skateboard and heads to the Denver Skatepark, to skate with friends and sometimes take photographs, adding to his eclectic portfolio. And at night, he'll draw -- continuing a creative career that began when his mother helped open an auto dealership and asked her then-eight-year-old son to design its logo.
