About Daniel

IMG_0075So, you want to know about me without actually talking to me, do you? Well, you have come to the right place. My name is Daniel Peoples. I am a writer. I write things. (That’s what that means, apparently.) I like to write facts, my opinions on things, (as if there’s a difference), stories, poetry, movie and book reviews, and basically anything else I feel like writing about. My love of writing stems partly from my love of grammar and the English language. In addition to writing, I am also an amateur filmmaker, mostly making LEGO animations, but also some live-action work. (You can check out my YouTube channel for movies and animations here, and my main YouTube channel here.) Those who know me sometimes refer to me as Spock because of my general knowledge about things, my logical approach to life, and my sarcastic sense of humor. In my free time, I enjoy reading books and watching movies, especially Disney films, as well as listening to music, including movie soundtracks and classic rock and roll from the 1950’s and 1960’s. I love animals and nature in general. I am also autistic and a proponent of the theory of neurodiversity, formerly serving on the board of a student autism advocacy group at Marquette University, and currently being a member of the Marquette Autism Consortium. As for my political views, conservatives think I’m a liberal, and liberals think I’m a conservative, so I must be doing something right. I lean right on some issues and left on others, but mostly I try to support personal freedom and limited government. Most importantly, I am a Christian. I am an adopted son of God, redeemed and washed by the blood of Jesus. So now you know.

Movies | Disney, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek (The new ones by J.J. Abrams), The Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Lego Movie, anything by Steven Spielberg, Les Miserables (The Musical by Tom Hooper), The Social Network, Steve Jobs, La La Land, musicals in general
