On a personal note...
Dan spends most of his time wedding planning with his Fiancée and looking after their two pet rabbits. He supports multiple sports teams, none of which ever seem to do well. A self-professed geek, he is often happiest when rolling dice in a tabletop game or listening to a gripping podcast.
