Danny Prater

Danny Prater

Danny spent the formative years of his life in rural Ohio, living among corn stalks and log cabins in the shadow of a ghost town that burned to the ground in the 1840s. Fittingly, you can often find him wearing plaid and sporting a burly beard. With a communications degree in hand from The Ohio State University, he moved to Los Angeles in 2012. In his free time, Danny likes to go for "long-ish" jogs, maintain his self-appointed title as the greatest Dr. Mario player on Earth, and dote upon his two feline companions and numerous succulents.
