About Me


☮ Understanding ☯


Hi! I'm Danny! I am a software developer and I work on a lot of side projects. I enjoy biking, skiing, and and hiking when it's warm outside; board-games, books and Netflix when it's cold. I used to live in Colorado and California but I recently moved to Washington DC. It's a really fun city and I would be happy to show you the city - and explore it a bit myself.

"There've been times when I wander
And times when I don't.
Concepts I'll ponder
And concepts I won't ever see."
- Phish (Bug)


Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.-Carl Sagan

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hiked 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago. At the end of the hike and in the plaza of Santiago de Comprestela I walked over to a group of reporters and I saw that they were talking to one of my favorite authors, Paulo Coelho. He invited me to come to the mayor's office for a dedication ceremony and I got to overlook the plaza from the mayor's balcony.
