About our Guest:

Daniel is the founder and CEO of premier global brand for blue and artificial light-blocking products. He promotes and educates the science behind modern phenomena such as digital eye strain and poor sleep, and the connection these have with screen overuse. Through his innovative product range, he champions eye health, sleep quality, and well-being. 

He originally created his business, BlockBlueLight, as a result of a need to fix his own health issues, suffering from chronic insomnia, as well as eye strain and migraines, Daniel’s overall health and well-being were declining. He had no idea why. There were many frustrating and failed attempts to try and fix his health issues. 

Deciding to do his own research, he stumbled across how light (specifically, blue light) impacts circadian rhythms by suppressing melatonin secretion, which in turn can cause sleep issues. He also discovered how chronic exposure to artificial light during the day could also cause eye strain, migraines, and even lead to permanent eye damage. 

Daniel’s company has now become recognized as one of the most trusted international brands and leaders in blocking blue light technology. BlockBlueLight is passionate about what they do and delight in helping people live healthier lives. Their aim is to make mitigating blue light a mainstream concern and give people tools and knowledge to be able to be their best selves in today’s digital age.
