Hey-o! My name is Daniel Santoro, but most people just call me Danny. Sometimes I get called Dan, and one time a guy called me Don, but you can keep it simple. A little bit about me: I’m an overly-ambitious thirty-something with a talent and interest in anything that has a line of code, a switch to flip, or a fuse to light (especially that last one) and I’m always learning and finding more. In practical use, my areas of expertise cover a broad net of topics – from professional, global-scale web design to small-store commercials and computer solutions… Ultimately, I’m good at pinpointing a problem and solving it.
Based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, I attended the University of Cincinnati’s Electronic Media program, of which I graduated in 2012 (with a minor from the Carl H. Lindner College of Business). Apparently I was pretty handy at it too – I was honored with one of Electronic Media’s highest rewards. Since then, I’ve worked in the media production field doing a variety of work from corporate video spots, television commercials, narrative short films, web design, social marketing plans, and complex e-commerce storefronts. My work has been syndicated on Amazon, WalMart.com, and dozens of other retailer websites and is used to drive sales for multi-million dollar worldwide companies.
For the past few years, I’ve moved on as a Senior Applications Developer at Siemens Digital Industry Software. There, I’ve built and now manage the blog network of over 60 individual blogs, the Solid Edge product site, and a custom professional certificate testing solution – all with WordPress.
