Dani Daniels took the first name of her stage name after a former partner. She said that this was an "immature act of revenge" on her part.

Her first scene was for Reality Kings. She was initially a lesbian-only performer, but later started performing with men also. Her first four sex scenes with men were in the film Dani Daniels: Dare for Elegant Angel. Elegant Angel also produced an all-girl film titled Dani, which features Daniels in every scene.
