Danny Perales '08 (BS Accountancy, MS Accountancy/Financial Management)

Thursday, September 10, 2020TOPICS: Alumni

Danny Perales is the chief operating officer and chief financial officer at eyeBrain Medical, Inc., better known as Neurolens, in Orange County, California. He runs this startup, which now employs 60 people, along with another USD alumnus, CEO Davis Corley. Perales and Corley met during their first year at the University of San Diego and were freshman roommates who both went through the USD School of Business’ accountancy undergraduate and master’s degree programs.

Perales graduated in 2008 and right in the middle of a tough job market and an economic downturn. But his education at USD prepared him for success thanks to two traits — a strong work ethic and a positive, can-do attitude. He realized these two things kept him on track while in school and they remain two traits he sees as important to work alongside. “Be the solution, not the problem.”

Perales was featured in the video above as part of the Fall 2020 new student convocation for USD's incoming class of undergraduate students.
