"I always think of geek as a four letter word with a six figure income and it puts a smile on my face."
Bacteria and numbers are Dane's biggest strengths – in fact he has memorised pie to 103 decimal places.
"I love statistics and numbers and everything," he says. "I don't know why, I'm just good with them."
Health science student Dane is the first to admit he's never really bothered to put any effort into his outward appearance.
"I just mainly rely on my brain really. I don't really care about the outside appearance.
"I mainly wear two pairs of pants. And I wear runners all the time because I feel most comfortable in my runners and I have to wear them for work just in case we have a spill."
A competitive lawn bowls player, Dane spends his Saturdays playing the game with mostly senior citizens before returning home, where he lives with his grandmother, and watching his favourite Japanese anime series.
He's also quite a fan of the Japanese card games based on the series and is most recently obsessed with Vanguard, although Pokemon also still rates highly in heart.
"I'm big on Pokemon, but I'm also into my games. I've got a 3DS and a Nintendo DS so I can trade myself between the games," he says.
Dane is looking for a girl with a gorgeous smile, but he also knows the type of Beauty he isn't attracted to.
"Girls with the fake tan and peroxide blonde hair I just consider them fake. They look like they've rolled around in a packet of doritos," he admits.
Admitting his one and only girlfriend was as a 13 year old, Dane says he is in desperate need of help with the opposite sex.
"I want to learn about these signals that people give off because I have no clue what they are. I'm oblivious to it. And I really need some confidence just in general."
