Oh hello. I didn't see you come in.
My name is Dan, I'm 24, originally from Massachusetts, went to school in Oregon, lived in Jackson, Wyoming managing a ski rental shop for 18 months, and now I've moved to Los Angeles to pursue a passion of working in film production. I'm brand new to the area and I'd love for someone to hang out with and show me around!
I like to think I'm very friendly, and love to spend time with people, though sometimes solitude is nice.
I'm very active, and absolutely love mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, and working out, and I'm thinking about trying out for American Ninja Warrior.... but I also enjoy getting nerdy about movies, tv, books, and other things of that nature, hopefully making me a fairly well rounded human person!
What I’m doing with my life
Actively trying to figure that out! I have a degree in philosophy(obviously incredibly useful) and a minor in 3D modeling and digital art, something I'd hope turns out to be a little more useful working in the film industry, and it's what gets me excited!
I’m really good at
Being immediately friendly to just about anyone, and I'm pretty good at riding a bicycle I suppose.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hard to say. I was once described as "a slightly uglier Chris Evans," which to this day, I'm still not sure was an insult or a compliment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Huge variety of things, but anything from scifi/fantasy, to nonfiction, to philosophy. Neil Gaiman, George R.R. Martin, Tolkein, Neal Stephenson, Jonah Lehrer, Albert Camus, David Hume etc...
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Office Space, District 9, Inception, The Prestige, Primer, Anchorman, Fight Club, and The Social Network just to name a few. Ask me about movies and we'll get along great.
TV: Arrested Development, The Wire, Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, Always Sunny, Futurama, Mythbusters, Archer, Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Silicon Valley, TOP GEAR. I enjoy digging into a new show on Netflix.
Music: Pretty much everything but country, but right now I'm really into Chillstep, Electronica, Jazz Hip-Hop and indy rock.
Food: Not a huge Asian food fan(except for Thai), but absolutely love seafood, Italian, and I'll NEVER say no to some good buffalo wings.(If i do say no to buffalo wings, call 911 immediately, something has gone awry.)
Games: (for people who care) League of Legends, Hearthstone, Witcher 3, Fallout 4 and others.
The six things I could never do without
A Pull Up Bar
Access to the woods,
and of course, a good hamburger.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As a philosophy major I've LITERALLY spent a lot of time considering the meaning of life. Beyond that, I think about all sorts of things. People, relationships, and where I want to go in my own life. You know....stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
An intentionally bad movie with friends or out somewhere where you can hear people talk. Alternatively home, sans pants, watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not proud of it, but I will watch literally any TV show hosted by Gordon Ramsay. My only reality TV vice.
You should message me if
You find my roguish charm intriguing, you want to ask about anything I mentioned up there, or you'd just like to say howdy. :)
