My name is Dan Marvin. I'm a creative director/writer who loves what I do. Not many people can say that about their career, and I don't take that for granted. Sometimes my job feels more like a hobby that I take really seriously, and I love that.

After graduating from Michigan State, my wife and I moved to North Carolina for five years, then Chicago for two. We then moved back to Michigan for eight years, and now we're loving life in Austin, TX. Somewhere along the way we had two amazing kids.

I'm best summed up as a sports fan and a family man. But not in that order, unless it happens to be March. Besides spending time with my family, I play a lot of basketball and write children's books (here's one).

I have a useless talent where I can tell you instantly how many letters are in any word. ("Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is 34 letters, smart-ass.) I have to be able to spell the word, but I won my 5th grade spelling bee (true story), so, you know, I wasn't very popular in 5th grade.
