Daniel García-Mont was born on September 8, 1977, in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico in the middle of a tropical storm (it was raining so hard that the surgeon had to perform the c-section without the aid of his glasses because he couldn't go out to fetch them).

After graduating from sixth grade, Daniel along with his family moved to Arizona so that his parents could pursue their doctorates at Arizona State University. He finished High School in Arkansas. After graduating from High School, Daniel was accepted to Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas where he pursued a degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. When his family moved back to Puerto Rico he came along with them, finishing his degree at the University of Puerto Rico.
