Danny and Mia met as classmates at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. Although their romance didn’t start immediately, a strong friendship did. The two spent time together after their History of Higher Education class and eventually began to date. After graduating from Penn, Danny moved back to St. Louis briefly but soon returned to Philadelphia and their relationship grew. Danny proposed to Mia in August of 2015, using their dog, Pepper, as the vehicle for delivering an engagement ring.
