Sirens blared in the night as fire fighters rushed to save a store as it went up in smoke. The fire fighters kicked doors down and shot their fire hoses in hopes of extinguishing the fire. Danny Pitttelli, a 21 year old UB student, was one of those firemen.
Danny, a Long Island native, decided at a young age to follow the footsteps of his father. These footsteps lead Danny to enlist as a volunteer firefighter.
Danny’s first fire fighter action came one night as he sat eating leftovers with his family. He received an automatic alarm notifying him of a possible fire. Leaving his chicken on the table, Danny suited up expecting a false alarm. To his surprise, he arrived on location to see a smoking 99 cent store. He quickly aided his fellow fighters and until the fire was extinguished
Although Danny enjoys the rush of fighting fires, he true passion is in photography. Just like firefighting, Danny followed his father’s footsteps into photography. He wishes to pursue his passion for photography into a career in media production. Danny sees himself in New York City or Los Angeles in the next couple years follow his graduation, although he would like to continue living in Buffalo.
