In August 2005 a friend dragged Dan to see a “nerd rapper” named mc chris who was performing at the
Double Door in Chicago. The only reason he agreed to go was because mc chris had supplied voice talent to
one of his favorite shows, Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The performance was an astounding display of both Nerd
pride and Nerd rage and before the evening was over Dan knew that he wanted to explore this world of Geek
Rap that he would soon learn was known as “Nerdcore.” Besides producing and directing Nerdcore For Life,
Dan was also one of the project's primary cameraman.
