Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Self-summarizing on a profile is best done with bullet points.
Start with a quote first."
— Winston Churchill
* Hi, my name is Daniel. If you were looking to read more about a
Daniel, you've come to the right place.
* My set of interests, if represented as a gourmet gift basket, is
a tasty arrangement of technology, design, and pop culture. There's
also some dried fruit but it's mostly ignored.
* Sometimes I think it'd be sweet to be a teenager from the late
50s. One, because poodle skirts and malt shops are awesome. Two,
because I'd love to be that Asian guy masterfully doing the twist
and the mashed potato.
* I love fast cars, clever people, and mega-spicy foods. On rare
weekends, I love fast foods, clever cars, and mega-spicy people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My current adventure is running/growing a web company based here in
SOMA. I'm technically on leave from college, having left a few
years ago to found this startup. I'm loving every moment of the
journey, and I'm fortunate to have a team of some of smartest, most
ambitious people I've ever met.
In that regard, I'm living my adult dream. That said, my childhood
dream is to be an astronaut and/or time traveler. I'll see how that
goes... getting the right licenses is a big pain.
I'm very big into cars and motorsports. If there's one hobby I'd
like to spend more time doing, it'd be racing on the track.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

"Oh my god, hi, I loved you in the movie Drive!"
Oh no, sorry, that's Ryan Gosling. He's a Hollywood actor. Don't
worry, it happens. Also, here, I think you dropped these glasses.

Same answer to all 5: Grease
Edit: Alright, seriously then: Vietnamese, Back to the
Future, The Wire, Life of Pi, Red Hot Chili Peppers. I answered out
of order, but I'm sure you can match everything up.
Generally speaking, I love things — whether entertainment or
edibles — that can complement an expansive imagination. I'm
all over it if it can transport me somewhere fun.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
And Bashful? Oh, I could definitely do without Bashful.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
* how future generations of people will use consumer technology.
How will our children's children most effectively use Angry
* what it'd be like to travel to different planets as if traveling
to different countries. Doze through a couple Adam Sandler movies
and you're on Neptune?
* the steps needed to be Batman professionally. Do I really need to
be an orphan first?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've decided to make this multiple choice. Is it...
a) Tending to my growing collection of Dinosaur miniatures.
b) Clocking in hours for my year-long astronaut training
c) Recording potential "come back" singles for my now-defunct 90s
d) Typing silly things in a text box for a question that's begging
for a silly answer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As I'm filling this out, a Selena Gomez song came up on my
playlist. The playlist was one song on repeat.
