LogDNA is excited to welcome Danny Chai as our first VP of Engineering!

We asked him some important questions…

What were you doing previously?

I took a year-long break from work. I was previously at a startup called Branch.co, which used machine learning to do microlending via mobile phones in Africa. Prior to that, I spent 8 years at Facebook, from 2007-2015.

What city are you originally from?

Born in Ohio, raised in South San Jose, and my family moved to Houston in 1993. But I myself have been in the Bay Area pretty much since 1977, so I’m an old-timer.

What is your favorite food, drink, or restaurant?

Pizza, Hibiki 21, Fat Duck

What’s your favorite flavor of cake? 

I don’t really eat cake…

What do you like to do for fun?

I read a ton. Also play a lot of music.

If you could instantly pick up a superhero power, what would it be?

The ability to log with 100% uptime and 100% reliability.

What’s an interesting fact about you that people wouldn’t guess?

In 7th grade, I was the pianist for the top junior high jazz band in the country. I got interviewed by the San Jose Mercury News and Downbeat magazine. That was my peak – I suck at playing jazz now.
