Hi! I'm Dana.

Are you the kind of person who wonders just how far you can push limited resources to bend them to your will?

When you find a new tool on the web, do you immediately start thinking about how you can use (or abuse it) for either profit, or maybe just for fun?

Then you're in the right place.

I'm an expert at functional learning. I learn and build things that are 'good enough' with extremely limited resources and time. Like this website. It's pretty good, right? Took me about thirty minutes and costs $2 a month to host.

My current project: I'm co-author at Discover Discomfort, an adventure travel guide to extreme learning, where Jo and I do things like figure out how to learn Arabic or Kung Fu in 30 days.

I also blog at The Vanity Metric, a satirical look at startup and workplace culture.

Need to get in touch? Here's where to find me:
