Get To Know Dan
I've never seen any of the Lethal Weapon movies.
Finishing things I've either been putting off or haven't had time to do. I like the feeling of having a clean slate and not having something that I need to do.
I let my wife drive my truck on the Silver Lake sand dunes.
Iron Man, Batman, and Spiderman.
Dan's Favorite Project
I'm kind of a data nerd. SEMCOG was challenging to get the data set up in a way that made the code manageable and reusable. And the challenge never stops, since the data must be updated each year. This creates an opportunity to revisit the code and make it better each time, so every year it's easier to update. I also got to work closer with the front-end team, which doesn't happen every day. It gave us a change to collaborate and make the site better overall. This project drastically changed the way I write code and approach projects. It's also pretty cool that every time I hear SEMCOG mentioned on NPR, I get to say, “Hey, I helped make their job a little easier.”
