Drew Daniel studied philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley, and then attended Brasenose College, Oxford University on a Marshall scholarship, where he received a second B.A. in English literature.

He returned to Berkeley and entered the graduate program in English, writing a dissertation entitled " 'I Know Not Why I Am So Sad' : Melancholy and Knowledge in Early Modern English Portraiture, Drama, and Prose". He was awarded his PhD in the spring of 2007.

His published reviews, catalogue essays, and articles range across Elizabethan drama, contemporary film, and the musical avant-garde. In 2008 Continuum Press published his first book, a study of the English “industrial” music pioneers Throbbing Gristle titled Twenty Jazz Funk Greats.

In addition to artist's talks, colloquia, and seminars at the Tate Modern, CalArts, Princeton and Harvard, he has taught courses in Renaissance literature, critical theory and aesthetics at UC Berkeley and the San Francisco Art Institute. He is also one half of the electronic duo Matmos.
