Dan spent nine years as a graduate student in the esoteric art of rocket science simulation, spending his days beating his computer to a pulp and gnashing his teeth through copious mounds of technical publications. Nights were split between more of the same and/or writing his own fantasy fiction. He never slept.
Thankfully, those days are over, and he has a 202 pages of dissertation rotting on the shelf to prove it. If you’re interested in helping it become something more than the completely useless encyclopedia entry it currently is, you can check it out here.
He now works as and e-commerce manager and web developer for a relatively small multi-million dollar company. He is also the father of four perfect children that all want to grow up to be just like him: tall, brilliant, and ridiculously good-looking.
Reading awesome books has filled his down time (and sometimes too much of his up time) since he was very young, with a focus on well-written works of old and new masters. He has little patience for poor writing, weak characters, or plots that don’t grab by the throat, the heart, or the funny bone. When found in public, he will usually be seen weaving through the masses with his face nose-deep into his most recent read.
Yes, he’s just that good.
He’s been around EBR since 2010, and has been the web master for the site since early 2018.
