A Coffee with Dan

What happens when you combine dry wit, incredible talent, and a kind personality? You get Dan, our newest member of the Iperdesign team. Dan has only been on the team for a short time, and he’s already making developer magic happen for our clients. Most impressively, he’s doing it while powered only on black coffee (usually). We sat down with Dan to learn more about him over a cup (though ours had cream and just a little sugar). Here’s what we found out:

What’s your favorite drink order? 

When I can, I’ll get a nice café au lait. Typically, a black coffee gets me through the day.  

What is your role at Iperdesign?

I am the front-end developer.

What are some of your current goals?

I’d like to learn and grow as a developer and eventually run my own team of developers someday.

What is one writing or designing pet peeve of yours?

When people use paddings and margins for alignment when they should be using flex.

When you show people around Philadelphia, where do you take them first?

It depends on the person, but I always try to stop by one of my old haunts, El Bar.

If you weren’t at work today, what would you be doing?

I would probably be going for a bike ride or watching a movie with my wife and our two cats.

Do you have any music or podcast recommendations?

I’ve been listening to the Stormlight Archives, an epic fantasy series, on audiobook and that consumes basically all of my audio bandwidth.

Any hidden skills or talents?

I’m reasonably good at chess.

Who is someone you admire and why?

I admire my wife Hannah because she just gets stronger and more impressive every day.

If you were to write an autobiography what would the title be?

No Thanks, I’ll Pass
