Dan Purdon

Welcome to my domain, which is really just an excuse to have my name as an email address. But as long as you’re here, here are a couple things you should know about me:

In a nutshell, I love exploration and learning.  In a bigger nutshell, I love traveling, writing, food (whether it be cooking it, eating it, talking about it, or just drooling over it on the internet), unusual beverages, home brewing, video games, hiking, small business, and last but not least, finding like-minded folks who are into the same things.

I created the gourmet shaved ice shop Yuki.  Look here for links to media and blogger coverage.

In the past, I’ve worked as a restaurant reviewer, freelance writer, pizza puller, web QA engineer, impromptu game show host, Japanese customer service agent, popcorn popper, security guard, freelance repair guy, Secretary to the Board for Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum, digital imaging QA tech, freelance bartender, background actor, an overseas missionary, operations manager for a Japanese chocolate company, and CEO of a make-believe evil corporation. In the future I want to write and travel more, buy a defunct missile silo, and open a speakeasy. If you want to help me with my plans of world domination, contact me at danithius@gmail.com.
