Hi, my name's Danny. I'm finally coming home to Chicago after three amazing years of world travel and bucket listery. Some of the highlights included riding across the country on a little green bicycle for charity, dodging angry Yaks in Nepal on the way to Mt. Everest Base Camp, trying one of everything in the street food markets of Asia, diving with sharks in Australia, and living in San Francisco and NYC. I'd love to share some of the crazy travel stories I've collected, but to hear more, you may have to share a few of your own.
If you're an adventurous girl with a kind heart and would rather fly on a giant, fluffy, white dragon than take the el, I hope to hear from you in the not-so-distant future.
I'm also obsessed with photography and, as of late, with Thai and Japanese cooking (hoping my roommate isn't too annoyed with my 14" wok hogging much of the cupboard space).
