He is a big music fan: has dabbled in bands, plays piano, guitar, soccer, hockey, and was an a cappella/chorale geek throughout his school days. Trivia began as a side project to meet some people in Chicago and make some extra money after his move, and it took off quickly - the rest is history. Dan writes all of the material for Whaddayaknow? which has consumed his life for a while now, but still very much enjoys it, so he doesn't plan on stopping any time soon as W? has still has many places to go.

He likes the feel of climbing and the sound of water and the smell of burning wood and the sight of stars, but is a city boy these days.
