Hi. I’m Dan. I’m a dad. And a husband.
And a Mets fan.
I can tell you how to get to Sesame Street. (Kind of.)
I have an email newsletter with more than 100,000 subscribers. It’s about trivia. Pee-Wee Herman once tweeted about it.
In 2013, I wrote a book.
I once had a startup, but I sold it to the founder of Wikipedia. I didn’t make nearly as much money as the press reported.
I’ve read all of the Harry Potter books at least twice.
I’ve never eaten bacon.
I was not in Gangs of New York.
I’ve fed cookies to Cookie Monster. I am now the proud owner of a fragment of the remainder of one of those cookies.
I’m a recovering lawyer.
In 2014, I wrote another book.
The best thing I’ve ever written is about my grandmother’s baked ziti recipe.
I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to create a YouTube channel (yay!) but the YouTube channel wasn’t so successful (boo!).
I went to Tufts. And Cardozo.
I’ve been the New York Mets Designated Driver of the Game four times.
In 2019, I wrote another book.
I wrote the joke that ended up becoming the most-liked tweet on Irish Twitter in the year 2020.
I’ve raised more than $10,000 for charity: water.
I am the Connecticut State Magic the Gathering Champion (1997) in both Limited and Standard formats. I am somewhat embarrassed by this.
Nice to meet you.
