My self-summary
Hey there, I'm Daniel!

The short version: goal-oriented, thoughtful, caring, humorous, inquisitive, & humble (of course). I try to embody the whole "put yourself in other's shoes" ideal as much as humanly possible. I more-or-less have my shit together: a career, my own place, etc.

The (probably excessively) long version:

I started my journey in South Africa and now live in Plano working as an electrical applications engineer. Some of my interests include cooking, baking, technology, candles, dogs, watching assorted puppy/cat/ASMR videos (see end of profile), and doing other various internet things.

Feel free to read on if you're interested!
What I’m doing with my life
Recently graduated with a degree in electrical engineering and began working as an applications engineer! As it's the beginning of my career and adult life, I'm currently getting used to it and setting goals for what I'd like to accomplish in life. I'd eventually like to return to school and get a graduate degree.
I’m really good at
...petting dogs. If you have a dog it's an almost certainty that I'll ask to pet it. I love dogs & have fostered several in the past, they're amazing.

On a serious note: I do a ton of cooking and baking. Chicken spinach feta omelette? Yum. Same goes for the usual bacon-wrapped-steak. Cake balls? You betcha.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm goal-oriented, thoughtful, caring, inquisitive, and embody the whole "put yourself in other's shoes" ideal. I try to be the best person I can be and learn from any mistakes I make.

Also, I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and immigrated to the United States with my brother and mom about 14 years ago! People usually notice the accent first :P

The six things I could never do without
* Socializing (with both people & dogs, but they're practically people)
* My Mom & Brother
* My Desktop & Phone (vain, I know)
* The Internet
* Coffee (dear caffeine: I love you)
* Miscellaneous hobbies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who I am, the things I do, and the effects of my actions on others & myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, watching a movie, browsing Reddit, or buried head-first in some form of video or board game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've lost a bunch of weight through dieting since November 2012.

I am pretty open to answer almost anything, go ahead and ask! :) I try my best to reply to every message I receive, even if I am not interested.
You should message me if
You're ambitious, have a sense of humor, and/or enjoy steaks and cupcakes being cooked for you. You should definitely send a message if you have anything in common with my interests! That's like... the whole point! Right? Maybe?

And here is your reward for reading! :D
