Danny Percefull

Hi! I'm Danny. I play the piano and make music on Broadway (mostly), but usually prefer to be outside in the woods somewhere. I attempted a 2018 thru-hike of the AT, but didn't finish. So I'm finishing in my own time and continuing to write about it here. I hope we'll meet up out there. I'll be the guy with the rose quartz hanging off his pack who also happens to be singing show tunes.
