Daniel Goldberg has worn many hats during his behind-the-scenes Hollywood career. He began in 1973 as sound editor and producer behind Ivan Reitman's third film effort, Cannibal Girls (1973). He would remain associated with Reitman through most his career, working as a screenwriter or producer on such films as Stripes (1981), Meatballs (1979), and Feds (1988). He took his first turn as an executive producer with Reitman's uneven comedy Junior, which re-teamed Danny De Vito and Arnold Schwarzenegger as a pair of scientists who conduct an outrageous experiment that culiminates in the world's first male pregnancy. Goldberg made his directorial debut with Feds (1988).
