About Dan Mozgai

Hi, my name is Dan Mozgai. I am best known for my cicada website Cicada Mania, a hobby of mine since the mid-1990s. The site allows me to experiment with web development, meet interesting and intelligent people from all around the world, and to educate people about one of the natural world's insect marvels, the cicada. I've been interviewed by Wired, CNN, NPR, the Washington Post and Tokyo TV.

When I'm not working on websites (cicada or otherwise) I can be usually be found wandering my local shore town, sneaking into NYC, reading a book, or staring into a glowing rectangle.

More information about me:

  • Articles about me or my cicada website.
  • Aside from cicadas and website development, I enjoy:
    • Learning new things
    • Collecting and listening to vinyl records
    • Exploring the natural world
    • Road trips
    • Wandering local beaches, scavenging for reusable debris
    • Taking a lot of photographs
    • Being mistaken for Lucius Malfoy
