Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.
I’m Daniela, but everyone calls me Dani. I’m a 30 year old Mexican-American word nerd. Originally from a border town in Texas, I moved to Chicago to attend college. With the exception of a two year stint in Austin, I’ve been here ever since. I started out as a magazine journalist, mainly focused on music and entertainment, and now work for a large non-profit. I’m a Texas girl through and through, but the Windy City is my home. I currently live in Andersonville with my husband, Alex, and our two fat cats, Asher and Cohen.
Things to know about me: I’m bilingual. I’ve dyed my hair blue twice. I have tattoos. I love to bake and knit, but I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy at heart. I’m a Whedonite (Buffy will forever be my favorite TV show). I love coffee and craft beer; when I’m not drinking either one, it’s because I’m drinking red wine. I’ve been a pescetarian for the better part of a decade. I’m a Leo, so I’m extroverted. I’m the oldest and my little sister will tell you that means I’m super bossy. I mostly prefer nights in on my couch than being out on the town.
Got a question? Just ask. :)
