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 Freddy Mercury.
- Fixing a bicycle with clothes hangers.
- Fixing a heating unit with clothes hangers.
- Conquering the world with clothes hangers.
- Working in a lumberyard.
- Going head to head with a giant pig and losing.
- Reading Silence of the Lambs with frequent power outages.
- Getting a tree dropped on my head.
- Baking the best cakes in the world with no oven.
- Scaring the hell out of a horror-tour tour guide.
- Hosting the best chocolate fondue parties on the planet.
- Going head to head with an all-you-can-eat french toast buffet and winning.
- Rafting the Nile. Twice.
- Writing a story about a gummy bear having an existential crisis.
- Visiting a recently deserted battlefield.
- Working with victims of civil 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 public service evaluation and how to incorporate crowd-sourcing methods into the process. I just started such a project this summer with UNICEF in Uganda that I'm super excited about it :D

I also dabble a little 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 Indian curries and how delicious they are. Results are definitely positive, but I'll need to boost my sample size to be sure ;)
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.

Also, I will kick anyone's ass at the original Super Smash Bros. Or MarioKart. I'm versatile.
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, 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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chewing bubblegum and kicking ass. And I'm usually all out of bubblegum.
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 usually simple and meant to start a short, fun conversation with that end in mind. Take five minutes and reply; you'll be glad you did :)
