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.
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’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 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.
