I’m David and pretty much everything that’s interesting about me can be summed up with the keywords from the subtitle .
I grew up in The Salvation Army and my faith has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember.
More recently I have found myself reassessing the fundamentals of my faith and stripping back everything that didn’t matter. It’s been a difficult process, because a lot of my life was built on top of that stack and without all the layers it’s become a little wobbly while I adjust.
I’m married to Lucy, we married in 2008.
In 2011 I became the father of Isaac.
In 2015 we “adopted” Willow, our Labrador.
I love playing with technology of all kinds. I also love geeking out on how things work. Most of my projects are either about finding how something works or trying to fix something. I’m always trying to fix things…
I’m particularly found of:
- Electric Cars
In reality this is just a subset of the above, but I love solving software problems and I’m grateful that I get to do it for money. In 2016 I left full time employment and became a freelancer/contractor (see my profiles at LinkedIn and Stack Overflow). These days I mostly work with PHP.
I also have a bit of an interest in business analysis and I enjoy helping smaller companies with their processes as they go through the growing pains of becoming a medium or large business (see TwinkleBob Solutions).
