Speed Dating is a series where we get to know some of our favorite brand evangelists, whether they’re artists, designers, entrepreneurs, activists, or full-time parents! Today in the hot seat is Daniel Huipe (@danielhuipe), a lifestyle content creator and PR maven at Prezzroom.

I’m a content creator based out of downtown Los Angeles. I’m part of the GQ Insider Network and I’ve been featured in their monthly newsletter! I live with my boyfriend, Alex, and our dog, Cooper.

We asked Daniel to sit back and relax on his custom Samson Sofa Lounger (upholstered in one of our “off menu fabrics” – ask us about them!) and answer some of our burning questions.

Round 1:
Lightning Round

What is your hometown?
Lodi, CA (you might know our wine!)

What show(s) are you currently binging?
OMG all the true crime documentaries you can think of! There is a channel on YouTube called “Scary Mysteries” that I binged for dayyyyys. If we’re talking more traditional TV, I was completely obsessed with Big Little Lies and cannot wait until the second season airs.

What’s your lucky number?
Hmmmm… I’ll get back to you on that one.

Are you an early bird or night owl?
Both? I’m usually up until around 12am/1am and up around 7:30am.

If you could sing a duet with anyone, who would it be?
Britney, no question. A good duet version of “Everytime” is long overdue…

What’s your dream vacation destination?
Oh man… I love going to Big Sur. It’s one of my favorite places I’ve visited. If you find yourself there, stop by Nepenthe and have a drink overlooking the ocean for me.

What do you collect, if anything?
Madonna Inn goblets! I pick one up every time I’m there. I have 8 right now. One in every color.

What is your life’s motto?
Stop overthinking everything. If you put in the time it will all work out.

Round 2:
Favorites…

Beer or wine?
Wine, duh.

Springsteen or Jay-Z?
Depends on the day, the time, and my mood tbh.

Stripes or solids?
AH! Again it just depends on my mood. I’m all for a monochrome look when I’m really feeling myself, or a striped nautical look when I want to get playful with it.

Cats or dogs?
My dog Cooper would be upset if I said ‘cats’.

Favorite color and least favorite color?
Favorite: pale pink with a grey undertone. Least favorite: I actually really like a mustard yellow, but it just doesn’t suit me!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
 Pistachio!!!

Favorite junk food?
Gimme some good fried chicken and french fries ANY. DAY.

Favorite song to sing in the shower?
“Style” by Taylor Swift

Favorite smell?
I have been a candle maniac lately but I really really really love Boy Smells “Redhead” right now.

Round 3:
Don’t Even Go There…

What’s the most embarrassing song we could find in your music collection?
Objectively speaking it’s probably embarrassing but I love it- “I Wanna Be Bad” by Willa Ford.

If you could be on one reality show which one would it be?
House Hunters: Renovation

What’s a hidden talent you have?
I sing and write music! I studied music in college.

Who is your style icon?
Blanche Devereaux meets the men’s locker room.

Who would you want to play in the movie version of your life?
Me :)

Round 4:
Sinner or Saint?

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Music! I listen to music from the moment I wake up until I go to bed.

What is your spirit animal?
Taylor Swift’s cats

What superpower would you want and why?
Teleportation… I am the WORST flyer!

What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who listen to music in public spaces without using headphones.

Who is the most famous person you follow on Twitter or Instagram?
Britney Spears / Taylor Swift

Who is the most famous person that follows you on Twitter or Instagram?
Follow me and take a look for yourself ;)

If you could have drinks with any 3 people, living or dead, who would they be?
Britney, Marilyn, Bette
