My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in (not just visited) 32ish different places in the past 10 years and have awesome stories from each one. Here's a smattering:

- Cooking and eating a cow's tongue.
- Winning a Michael Jackson dance-a-like contest.
- Having a puppy vomit a goat's head into my lap.
- Winning a human Hungry Hungry Hippos competition.
- Making all the hippo hats for said competition.
- Meeting a dog named Freddie Mercury.
- Fixing a bicycle with clothes hangers.
- Fixing a water heater with clothes hangers.
- Conquering the world with clothes hangers.
- Working in a lumberyard.
- Reading Silence of the Lambs by candlelight.
- Getting a tree dropped on my head.
- Attempting to bake brownies in a clay oven.
- Scaring the hell out of a horror-tour tour guide.
- Chocolate fondue parties.
- Rafting the Nile. Twice.
- Gummy bears with existential crises.
- Working with victims of civil and ethnic violence.
- Researching SMS-based development feedback methods.
- Driving the entirety of Route 66.
- Driving the entirety of the I-5.
- Using seaweed-flavored toothpaste for a month by accident.

And so on. I love to be open to and explore and find beauty in new and unique experiences and that extends into my relationships.

A dear friend once described me thus:

"Danny, I would say that half of you is very wise and the other half is completely ridiculous. Actually, I take that back -- you're just ridiculous."

I grow a mustache every Movember. In the morning, I am grumpy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do a lot of research in Africa, mostly to do with crowd-sourcing using mobile phones. I just started such a project this summer with UNICEF in Uganda that I'm super excited about.

I also some research in civic engagement-type stuff and how social structures like ethnicity or language affect local activism and interpersonal trust.

And of course I do a lot of work on the topic of ethnic foods and how delicious they are. Results are definitely positive, but I need to boost my sample size.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Grilled cheese sandwiches. The things I can do with pepper jack should be illegal.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
So many. Lately I've been going back to some of my favorite classics like Arthur Conan Doyle (p.s. If you haven't seen his Wikipedia picture, you need to) and Robert Louis Stevenson stuff. Also I've been on a huge classic noir kick (esp. Chandler).

Sooooo many. I LOVE Wes Anderson films (Tenenbaums is my fave). Also Soderbergh, Coen Brothers, and anything Miyazaki.

On the darker side, I'm a huge Scorsese fan and have a love for dark visual styles like with Kubrick or Ridley Scott films or Frank Miller adaptations. I also enjoy dark comedies, esp. Guy Ritchie and Edgar Wright ("You've got red on you ...").

"Treat yo self."

This changes by the day, but right now I'm listening to a lot of Above & Beyond (esp. Group Therapy), Andrew Bayer, Mat Zo, Cloudkicker, and Scale the Summit.

And the classics, of course: Beatles, Eagles, Clapton, Elton, CSNY, Creedence, Fleetwood Mac and frequent, heavy doses of Kenny Burrell and my boy Bill Evans.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If I've messaged you that means I'd love to go out sometime. I'm much more interesting and fun and charming in person; I'd imagine that you are, too. My messages are meant to start a short, fun conversation with that end in mind. Take five minutes and reply; you'll be glad you did :)
