Hi. I’m Dan. I’m a dad. And a husband.
And a Mets fan.
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.
My forehead is in a YouTube video with more than 20 million views.
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 made important public statements concerning Big Bird’s bedtime.
I’ve read all of the Harry Potter books at least twice.
I’ve never eaten bacon.
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 once started a petition which ended up with more than 150,000 signatures.
I’m a recovering lawyer.
In 2014, I wrote another book.
I created a legal argument that went to the Supreme Court (and the Court rejected).
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.
I’ve won a Clio, two Webbys, and a Shorty Award.
In 2019, I wrote another book.
I’ve raised more than $25,000 for non-profits like charity: water, Kiva, and ProLiteracy.
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.
