  • Daniel once tracked down an anime movie from the 1960s for a family member based on nothing but a vague recollection of a single scene. It took several hours of non-stop Googling.
  • Daniel's very earliest memory is of the steel-drum rendition of the overworld music in the SNES version of Super Mario. Bros.
  • The games in Daniel's Steam library alone currently number over 670 and counting.


Ever since he was a kid, Daniel has had a symbiotic relationship with his electronics, especially his PC and game consoles. Over the years, he's expanded that relationship into an interest in games, hardware, and software, finding the best possible PCs to cover all of his gaming and tinkering needs. He has written gaming and hardware guides for several sites including TheGamer and Gamer Journalist and even wrote his Master's thesis on the history of Mario games. He enjoys researching old gaming and PC hardware and peripherals for insight into how people have interfaced with their electronics over the years.


Daniel has a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and a Master's of Fine Arts in Creative and Professional Writing from Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Connecticut.
