Hi! I'm Daniel.
I like computers. I also like singing, coding, gaming, and a plethora of other nerdy things. This is my home on the web.
What is all this?
The first thing you should know is that I'm a nerd.
I play nerdy games like League of Legends, I do
nerdy things like build websites and apps,
and most of my free time is spent messing with
technology. The second thing you should know is
that nerds are actually really cool people.
This website is my personal playground and portfolio.
To my friends: please excuse
the serious parts of the site. I have to look
serious sometimes. To the
professional-types: please excuse the silly parts
of the site. I do have to be me.
