Hello, I’m Dann. I work at the intersection of engineering, finance, and cloud cost optimization. In simpler terms, I help make big, scary cloud bills not so big or scary.
Want to do a deep dive? There’s more on my About page, or you can check me out on LinkedIn, Github, and Twitter. It’s also pretty easy to find more about me with a quick Google search. Spelling Dann with two Ns is great for SEO.
In a past life, I was a tech journalist, and my writing has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, The Verge, Mashable, Laptop Magazine, and Tom’s Guide. I also co-authored a full-length play with my wife called “The Floorshow” about a group of tap-dancing showgirls in the 1950s.
I live in Brooklyn, New York with my wife and two cats.
I wrote a play with my wife called The Floorshow about a group of tap-dancing showgirls in the 1950s. It had a week-long run in 2019, which went really well.
Here's some of my writing from when I was Reviews Editor at The Verge.
You can check out a video of my play "Diary: A One Act Play" being performed in Manhattan Repertory Theatre's 2015 Spring One Act Competition.
There was a time that I documented sticker art around New York City and published the website Stickers of NYC.
Even though they're no longer available, I have fond memories of my three apps: Reader Tracker (iOS), Watcher Tracker (iOS), and WorkBurst (macOS).
