Hey, I'm Daniel!
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States · Member since May 2012

I'm a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, which is an old (by our standards) American university founded by Benjamin Franklin. I do research about how children learn language. I'm also a teacher, which in my case means that in the spring I write, score, and perform a new one-man show twice a week for 500 spectators.

How I travel: when in cities, I like to bicycle. When outside cities, I like river canoeing and backpacking into wild mountainous places.

As a houseguest I'm on the meticulous side. I put away my toys.

I've lived in New England, New York, England, France, the Netherlands, and California; I've been a pole vaulter, a fencer (foil/fleuret), and an Ultimate player. These days the pole vaulting is a thing of the past really. I confess to occasional pilates.

Music: these days, Beirut, Debout Sur le Zinc, the West Philadelphia Orchestra, Mathieu Boogaerts, Imbert Imbert, Lonely Drifter Karen, Babet, Brigitte, and any sound I can get from my ukelele. My favorite venues are Johnny Brenda's and Union Transfer in Philly, and La Java, Café de la Danse, and sometimes the Cabaret Sauvage in Paris.
