Danielle, also known as Danni, Faded Ginge (solely a reference to the hair), Niemann, and Dan the Man, is a pacific northwest native. She is an environmental science and health major who has a deep passion for the outdoors. Growing up on the lake, Danni loves all things boating and water related. She enjoys experiencing nature from all angles, including hiking, biking, running and kneeboarding. There is no better motivation than a sick view or photo-worthy sunset to finish off a trip.

Danni puts high importance on saving and preserving the environment in order to keep nature pure. She’s travelled to Madagascar, living in a village and conducting surveys to record lemur and reptile behavior. Huts and mosquito nets are far preferred over her tempur-pedic mattress. Maybe not the rice and beans though. She also spent a month in Costa Rica looking at primates and patrolling beaches to protect sea turtles. Danni loves to experience cultures from all over the world as well as right here in Southern California. Always on a quest for simplicity, she loves taking life back to the basics. Chillax.
