Hi, I’m Dave

I am a user interface designer, iOS developer, and web application guy based in Upstate New York where I live with my wife, a small child I helped make, four chickens, and a couple of dogs we rescued from a shelter.

What I Do

I design and build things using tools like Quartz Composer, SASS, & Sketch, and languages like Objective-C, python & JavaScript.

Signs Up

An iOS math game. Animations were prototyped in Quartz Composer, and the app makes extensive use of the POP framework to implement them. You can read all about it on it's very own website.

Strangely enough, I never had a Nintendo growing up.

Pelican Plugins

I recently used Pelican to build a site, and found it quite wonderful. There were a couple things I wished it did though, and so now it does:


VimTax: A GUI to help make your non-GUI editor pretty. I made this a long time ago, but I still love it.

Vim still doesn't look a day over 29.


I occasionally write things that people sometimes actually read.

Here are the kid and dogs I mentioned way back up at the top.
