A native of Topanga Canyon (think of it like the back-country of LA), I have recently received a B.A. in English from the University of California Santa Barbara. I'm now working to advance my writing career between time spent bartending and surfing, finding inspiration in all the crazy people I encounter along the way. I love great literature, head-high waves, songwriting and talking to strangers. Check out my writing at www.danoallan.com and my original music at https://soundcloud.com/doallan.
