My name’s Dan. Nice to meet you.
I spend my days as an Art Director at a fancy-pants ad agency and my nights talking about geeky things like typefaces and Doctor Who. I’m a technology junkie and spend most of my free time listening to podcasts and scouring RSS feeds.
My iPhone and iPad are pretty much permanently at … Read More
