Born and raised in San Diego, currently loving southeast Asia where I mostly divide my time between Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur with frequent visits to sites all around the region. I'm a freelance writer, entrepreneur, designer, and advertising specialist with my own blog, digital magazine, and podcast focused on adventure and location-independent entrepreneurship, and digital nomadism called "OpenWorld."

I have a variety of hobbies - love surfing, dancing, hiking, golfing, swimming, running, cycling, etc.

I enjoy good conversations, dance, cooking, good music, tango, capoeira, Muay Thai, laughing, and positive vibes!

I've spent quite a bit of time adventuring in South America and Asia and am happy to provide insights or connections around the region.

A friend and I connected with Danny in September 2016 during a quick trip to Bangkok. We only had 3 days in the city and wanted to see the "big stuff" as fast as possible. Danny was an awesome guide, giving suggestions on the sites and temples that we absolutely needed to see and what we could skip due to our short time frame. He totally customized the tour to our needs. Danny's knowledge of Thai culture and history were also impressive -- knowing the historic significance of the sites we visited added a lot to our day. Danny's also got great Thai language skills which helped with transportation and logistics and we got to see the local side of life rather than the typical tourist track. Overall, we learned a lot, we saw a lot, and Danny helped eliminate the stress of navigating Bangkok. I'm pretty sure we couldn't have done it without him! Thanks for hanging out, Danny!

Personable, engaging, and energetic, Danny was a great host. He did his best to make sure we got the most out of our time in Bangkok. We had a great time watching the sunset at Wat Saket. He even took us out to a unique local spot where we enjoyed whiskey shots for 10 baht! Thank you, Danny, for making sure our day in Bangkok was a time to remember.

Danny delivered a wonderful, relaxed, fun morning with this fantastic bike tour! I absolutely recommend doing this trip, especially if you like an easy bike ride in a park-like setting, delicious street food, and fascinating company. I went on a Sunday morning, so we also visited the busy local market, packed with all the typical Thai market stalls and their amazing sights and smells. Danny is knowledgeable and articulate about the local culture, and he communicates well in the Thai language. All I had to do was point and eat! Delightful. When I'm back in Bangkok, I will definitely book another tour with Danny. I would do this bike tour again; it's that fun.

Danny really went out of his way to make sure we got the most out of our time in Bangkok. He's quite an experienced traveler himself, and even hosts a travel podcast! Danny also shared a lot about the history of Thailand and the development of Bangkok over the past 200 years. Even though the Grand Palace closed early during our visit (it was a Buddhist holiday) which was unfortunate, Danny took us to some other interesting attractions such as Wat Arun, Wat Saket, and the Jim Thompson house. We took boats, road tuk-tuks, and even explored the backstreets and canals. For one day, the tour packed in a lot! Highly recommended if you want to get the most out of your time in BKK.
