My self-summary
Hey, I'm Danny. I like philosophy and making people laugh, and the magical moments when those two things intersect. I get very excited any time I hear a novel idea, or start a new book/show/hobby or when I'm talking to someone interested in the same things I'm passionate about. I'm something of a media/art junky; any day that goes by without a book, show, movie, music or viewing of some kind of art is a wasted day.

I'm from the deep South but am lacking in any cool Southern accent. I’m an outspoken feminist and atheist with something of a socialist streak who regularly makes valiant attempts to not take life too seriously.

I'm not one of those macho guys whose feelings only consist of rock and roll and not being afraid of things, and I tend to think gender norms are silly.

I love bookworms, people that are outspoken about their beliefs, or anyone that will talk nerdy to me. Depth in a partner is very important to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach philosophy and ethics at Akron and Kent. So, I've been making a career/life around finding out what is a valuable career/life. Depending on what kind of values I advocate for each day, this can either be an extremely validating or a rather soul crushing adventure.
I’m really good at
I'm so damn clever.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m pretty thin, I eschew gender norms, and am infectiously passionate about more things than I can shake a stick at... And I'm a damn good stick shaker.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- China Mieville, Lovecraft, Phillip K Dick, George R R Martin, Nietzsche, Aristotle, Chuck Palahniuk, Zadie Smith, Tom Robbins, Bukowski, etc

Movies- Give me a movie with a novel idea, that passes the Bechdel test, and that doesn’t have too many explosions and I’m probably interested. Anything by Wes Anderson is pretty amazing.

Shows- Unbreakable Kim Schmidt, Firefly, Parks and Recreation, and Community are some of my favorites. I do love a good cartoon (Bojack Horsemen, Adventure Time, Steven Universe) or anime (Parasite, Samurai Champloo, Keno's Journey, Attack on Titan, etc) too though.

Videogames- For nostalgic days, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Diablo II and Starcraft. Minecraft is great for shutting off my brain for a spell, but I do fall in love with games with a good story. Pokemon Go has really grabbed my attention for the last few weeks. An excuse for more hiking, meeting new people and nostalgia? Yes, please. Also, it's such an interesting game from a game design perspective, I could talk about that for days.

Music- Chopin, Childish Gambino, BT, Toh Kay, AFI, Nightwish, ANYTHING by Lin Manuel Miranda, Protomen, The Decemberists, Kanye, Nihls Fram, Moondog, Arlo Guthrie, Anais Mitchell, Hop Along, every musical other than The Sound of Music.... the list really goes on forever.
The six things I could never do without
Meaningful conversation

Interesting books/shows/games

Music I can dance to. "We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once."

A workout buddy

Furry critters- You probably shouldn’t trust me, I’m probably using you to get closer to your cat, dog, or other furry friend.

A goal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cool philosophy questions, duh.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, on a Netflix binge or maybe having a game night with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've read Nietzsche and liked it >.>
You should message me if
You should message me if you've got 99 problems and the hetero-normative capitalist patriarchy is the majority of those problems.
