Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi my name is Dan.
I love to make people laugh but I understand there's a time and a
place for a joke.
I have grown up in the Albany/Latham area for nearly all of my
life, but also I have done a lot of traveling. (London, Ireland,
Switzerland and all over North America. There has been something
amazing about every place I've been. I've seen and learned so much
but to me this area really feels like home. I still have many more
places I want to see like Korea, Japan, Brazil and a few
I think it is important to be an adult when you need to, but also
to enjoy life, and smile whenever the opportunity comes up.
I love my Irish herritage, I have been there 4 times now. I'm
thinking about going again in the summer. I miss it so much.
I have three tattoos and I want a couple more. They tend to get
I was married once and it lasted about eleven years. No kids from
it but I do like kids and will want them one day.
I've been on the dating scene for a few years now. I've dated women
who have children and it was a great experience. Not that I wasn't
nervous but I loved it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love my job, I manage a manufacturing department at a local green
energy company. I have worked there for 12 years now and enjoy
every good and bad day of it.
My pets are my kids. I'm a sucker for big sad eyes. I have two
cats, Ron Burgundy and Scotch.
For fun I like to get together with friends. Usually we play games
or maybe hit an occasional bar.
One of my friends is a local comedian and I think local comedy can
be a great time.
My favorite movies are comedies but Sci Fi is a close second.
Anything from Blazing Saddles and the Jerk, to Grandma's Boy, or
Anchorman. Even the second Anchorman had it's moments. I'm not
saying it was good but it wasn't bad. Most of the comic movies are
great. I have a special place in my heart for Groot. Also I
recommend the soundtrack to the Guardians movie I tap my feet to
nearly every song.
Music is completely based on my mood.
I love the 90's, metal, hip hop, even a little country. I had to go
to a karaoke bar to learn to appreciate country but it grew on me.
Don't get me wrong there isn't a country station on my Pandora app.
Let's not take this too far.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think I make an excellent listener/problem solver. I like to
talk, but I also want to know what you have to say. Over the years
I ended up being the person that many people felt comfortible
opening up their deepest issues to. Plus I've seen a lot myself.
You don't manage 80 plus people at a time without hearing some
pretty amazing/crazy stories.
I can put the daily grind into perspective and help someone out
with a good conversation. Or just shut up and listen to you talk
when that's all you want to do.

I'm gonna guess the hair, but I am still waiting for the poll
results to come in on this question. Seriously, do many people know
the real answer to this?

I do not read books very often. I love to read but mostly news
articles off the web. I think books are great, but for all the
things I do in my life, there isn't the time.
Pulp Fiction might still be my favorite movie, but I like so many
it is hard to choose a #1. Some of my other favorite movies are The
Crow, Spaceballs, The Boondock Saints, Clerks, The Jerk,
My Pandoa radio station is set to James Brown, Jay-Z, Slipknot, and
Matchbox 20. There isn't much I do not like. I think the music I
listen to is a reflection of my mood and my personality. A big part
of me is still stuck in the 90's. In fact I have a Pandora station
title, "Standing outside a broken phone booth with money in my
hand." Bonus points to you if those words made the song come to
your mind. Google it if you don't know it, because you
When it comes to TV I usually have my station on Comedy Central,
A&E, or Discovery.
I love almost every food there is. Mexican might be my favorite but
almost everything tastes great. Not olives though there downright

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with my friends. My house is usually the place that a
few of my friends stop at on any given friday night. I am not big
into the bar scene, but I don't mind them either.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

The first time I sang karaoke the bartender banged pots and pans
during my song.
