Meet the Team: Danny Martin, Graphic Designer

Danny is currently studying for his Masters in Advertising at Boston University, or as he likes to call it…BU. Originally from Oregon and a graduate of the University of Oregon’s Journalism program (Go Ducks), his wife Julia and he made their way east in order to, well, get away from Oregon. As a young lad he dreamed of becoming a professional skateboarder, and now he work in a very similar field, Marketing for Real Estate. He loves creating things, so, you might say he’s creative. He is an underground hip-hop prodigy yet to be discovered and a Graphic Designer for such notable projects, as, well, How May I Connect You?…thanks for the chance Jeff. He hopes to someday be a copywriter for an ad agency where he can use his, you guessed it, creativity for the good of corporate America…he means…mankind.

What was the first piece of technology you remember using? What was your favorite (or least favorite) thing about it?
Everybody remembers the game Oregon Trail, in fact, since moving to the East Coast, I think most people my age who hear I am from Oregon mention memories of the game. So, I guess the answer to your question is, I like the game, but I have never had dysentery and I don’t think you should ford the river.

What piece of obsolete technology do you still use? Why?
I still use my Apple IPhone 5, stupid apple always coming out with something new right when I just upgraded. Oh well in 2 years Ill have the iPhone 20S.

What is your favorite social network and why?
My favorite social network is Myspace via 2007. I was on the verge of becoming a Hip Hop star, each song on my music player had over 1000 listens, then I realized I was the only one listening. I was my biggest fan.

What has been your most moving experience with technology? Were you overwhelmed, touched, in awe?
When I was finally able to upgrade my phone from the Droid to the iPhone I watched the episode of Futurama with Fry’s dog on Netflix, saddest episode ever.

If you could add one new button to Facebook, what would it be?
I would like to somehow tell everyone that I like what they are saying without actually having to communicate at all…wait…

If you were to create a 5-song mixed tape to share with the world via the Internet, what would be on it? What would you title it?
