I’m Dan Ott—a developer working from the bourbon soaked hills of Lexington Kentucky. I’ve been building things on the Internet for some twenty-odd years. When I’m not building things on the Internet you’ll find me building a fire in said pit, riding a bike, reading books, or eating breakfast food with my family.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the Internet. Say, let’s grab a burger sometime. 🍔
