Hi, I’m Dave,

I started out in software as a database administrator, and spent a long time focusing on building and maintaining relational databases in healthcare and education.

In 2010 I started a small software company and enjoyed doing tonnes of work for very little money for a few years before teaming up with a few entrepreneurial friends and starting iApotheca Healthcare. Around 2014 I really started getting deeply involved in full stack development with the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP).

In addition to my regular day jobs, for the past decade I’ve also spent a lot of time freelancing, contracting and consulting on platforms like Upwork and Fiverr.

I also went back to school in 2021 for part time studies pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics.

At this point, I am fairly specialized in the TALL stack (Tailwindcss, AlpineJS, Laravel, Livewire), but enjoy using and learning many other technologies as well.

Check out my tool-belt page to see more of what I do.
