Software Engineer
Hey 👋

My name is Dan, and you have stumbled on my little slice of the internet.

I was born and raised in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of "upstate" New York, just over an hour north of New York City.

After high school I migrated south to attend university at Coastal Carolina University, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

After school I moved back to New York for a few years to work for IBM before completely giving up on the winter months and moving down to the always sunny Austin, Texas.

Since arriving in Austin in 2012, I have worked for a couple of software companies. I transferred down here with IBM, then I went to work on a social media management platformat Lithium Technologies. We later merged with our cross-town competitors at Spredfast, and went on to change our name to Khoros.

v In the summer of 2019, I decided that it was time for my next challenge. I received an awesome opportunity to work with two of my friends from college, and help build their cybersecuity experience training platform at Living Security

Since my first time playing "office" at my grandparents house, I've always had a strong interest in entrepreneurship. That's always driven my interest in software development and my constant obsession with creating new products. I expect this site to feature a lot of content around that topic, and I hope you enjoy!
