Hi, my name is Daniel P. Borbolla and I’m President and CEO of B&FPS.
This may sound a bit odd, but digital marketing saved me from a miserable professional life. How, you may ask?
It all happened back in 2004 when I realized the impact Web 2.0 would have in terms of newly-added functionality, interactivity and usability for websites, and how that would impact business moving forward.
I’ve always had a love for brand marketing and web design, so when digital marketing became a reality, I knew I had found my calling and immediately wanted to jump right in. At the same time, I was faced with the very risky decision of leaving behind a very boring (but secure) government position and essentially hitting the reset button on my “career” up until that point.
With my wife’s blessing, I resigned in December of 2006 and spent the next seven grueling years working and learning my way towards one day being able to open my own firm where I’d go on to develop comprehensive digital marketing strategies and execute on my clients’ behalf.
That dream finally became a reality when I opened Borbolla & Figueiras Professional Services in May of 2014.
Ever since then, I’ve been blessed to work with businesses in verticals like construction, law, medicine, and technology, among several others.

8 Facts About Me:
– I’ve been married to my wife for 18 wonderful years and I’m a proud father. Spending time with my family is what matters most to me above all else, so this tops the list without question.
– My mom has always gone out of her way to assist sick and injured animals. Thanks to her example, we’re big animal lovers (especially dogs).
– I live in South Florida, and have yet to visit a state or country at the same time that it was snowing. So, in case you’re wondering, seeing snow is still on my bucket list (sad I know).
– I’m an old-school gamer going all the way back to 1980-81 when my dad brought home the Atari 2600 bundled with Combat (a terrible game). The second game I owned was Donkey Kong, and that game was particularly special because it was the first time I played as Mario (“Jumpman”). Then the NES came out in 1985 and the rest is history. Despite their flaws, I remain a huge admirer of Nintendo.
– I’m a sports fan and my favorites ranked by order of importance are: NCAA football, NFL football, NHL/college hockey, soccer, basketball and baseball.
1.) College Football – My favorite college team growing up was the Miami Hurricanes. I became a Michigan Wolverine fan back in eighth grade when I was admitted into Belen Jesuit. I’m a bit of a newcomer when it comes to Alabama football though!
2.) NFL Football – The Miami Dolphins were the first team I started rooting for back when I was 7 years old (1982). The New York Giants were always a team I’ve liked from afar since they always made life miserable for all of our AFC East rivals. Thank you New York Football Giants!
3.) NHL/College Hockey – Strangely enough, I started liking hockey because of a video game — NHL ‘94 on the Sega Genesis! I’m a long-suffering fan of the Florida Panthers (we do exist!), and a huge Michigan Wolverine hockey fan.
4.) Soccer – During the ‘02 World Cup, some of my co-workers started watching matches on the office TV and I’ve been hooked ever since. When the cup ended, I started following the English Premier League and adopted Liverpool and Real Sporting de Gijón in La Liga. I also support Inter Miami CF.
5.) Basketball – Basketball was a sport I always found myself casually playing rather than following on television. Up until we got the Miami Heat in ’88, I was a fan of the Boston Celtics fan since they’re essentially the anti-Lakers. I also liked the Bulls because of MJ, of course.
6.) Baseball – When I started watching baseball in 4th/5th grade, I liked the New York Yankees because my father and grandfather were big fans of theirs growing up in Cuba, including my father-in-law who’s been like a father to me. I also root for the Florida/Miami Marlins.
– I’m an astronomy nerd dating back to when I was in the 6th grade. I love reading the research and watching those overly-long YouTube documentaries that my wife can’t make it through 10 minutes without falling into a deep sleep.
– In 2017, we discovered that our daughter had low hand muscle tone (hypotonia), so we created a coloring pages YouTube channel to inspire her and others to color. She’s recently gotten into gaming due to quarantine and it’s helped her condition tremendously, so we transitioned our content to reflect her new passion.
– I haven’t touched a physical drum set for as long as I can remember (~2000), but still manage to annoy and embarrass my wife and daughter with my animated air drum displays both at home and in the car.
I could go on and on, but I think I’ll stop right here. Thanks for reading through!
