My self-summary
Remember those sleepovers in grade school when you'd play Dream Date? At the end of every game, you'd look on in horror as the little plastic doors swung open to reveal "the nerd." Your bestie would always get that Justin Timberlake looking guy. Wtf. Well, congratulations, your luck has finally changed.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I live a dual life as a software engineer and a professional musician in Beatles tribute bands (I bet you've never read that sentence on OkCupid before). Sure, fake Beatles are required to wear wigs and fake mustaches, but it's a small price to pay for getting to travel and see the world. I'm now returning to Chicago to work on a new business with my brother.
I’m really good at
private serenades and fixing your computer issues. Not necessarily at the same time.

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).
The first things people usually notice about me
People say I look like Justin Long. I'll take it as a compliment as I am most definitely a mac guy.
