Hi, I'm Daniela Capistrano

Welcome to my personal lair on the Internet. This is where I write about storytelling, activism, technology, and pop culture.
Daniela Capistrano

Strategic Rebellion. Measurable Results.

My name is Daniela Capistrano (they/them) aka @dcap on Twitter. I am a latinx queer trans non-binary entrepreneur, podcaster, storyteller, journalist, content strategist, emerging media consultant, and proud parent. While working as a senior producer for media companies such as MTV Networks, I founded DCAP Media LLC in 2010 as my business home to work on creative projects with inspiring folks around the world. I also founded @POCZineProject in 2010 as my ongoing experiment in art, activism, and community through materiality. I’ve been a full-time entrepreneur and “good trouble”-maker since 2015 & I wouldn’t have it any other way!
