About Me


Be productive in life; help others; make it a better place...


Visit me on FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/daniel.odulo/

I live a fairly active life, generally speaking. I run multiple small businesses, (two more active then others,) Custom software development and Flashing Panda, "Stuff that lights up!" https://www.FlashingPanda.com/ I also volunteer with some non-profit groups, run a Burning Man camp, actively ski in the winter, practice Acro-Yoga, frequent hot springs, host random couch-surfers, and much much more :)

I take a lot of photos at the various events I attend, including Burning Man, and various eccentric fairs that you will probably only find here in San Francisco. If you are interested, here's my photo site: www.EnchantingArt.net.

I am honest, reliable and dependable. If our personalities match you may even find me fun :)

I (used to) enjoy (back when I had time) going to the beach, social dancing, horseback riding, traveling, etc.

I enjoy people who are honest, intelligent, reliable.


Choose good things to do; be productive; help others; make the world a better place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Check out my top picks of Things to Do and See in South Bay:


While I do not have much time for my interest any more, there are two that do not fail to take up a significant amount of my time:
1) Skiing. In the winter, provided good conditions, you'll find me on the mountain most weekends.
2) Burning Man. I've gone 8 years in a row and hosted a small camp a number of those years.
3) Acro-Yoga. One of my passions and I practice regularly.
4) Hooping.
5) Hot Springs. In the summer, I visit the hot sprints frequently.

I also love anything outdoors, including hiking, backpacking, beaches, etc.

I used to do a lot of dancing. I've done extensively ballroom, Latin, and swing. I rarely get out these days, but I started to make an effort to go to a local Lindy joint once a month, when they have a live band.

I am also very handy and enjoy making/building/fixing things.

Much of my day I spend on my laptop. Everything including software architecture and development, online marketing, research, customer service, photo editing, copy writing, etc., etc.
