Alan Danzis is a lifelong technology enthusiast, which is something he inherited from his father. An early adopter, he had the first generation Sony TiVo, and he had to buy a special device just to plug the analog DVR into his digital phone line in college. Further showcasing his nerdiness, he attributes his exceptional typing skills to playing Sierra games as a kid. Danzis currently lives in Hoboken, N.J., where he usually plugs too many power cords into a single outlet. Keep up with him on Twitter @adanzis.
