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, a chicken, and a couple of dogs we rescued from a shelter.

What I Do

I design things using tools like Quartz Composer, SASS, & Sketch, and develop things in 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.

Available on the App Store!

React-Native Multipicker

The picker control that ships with the React Native standard library only allows one picker component. That is silly, so I wrote one that lets you have as many as you need.

Check it out on GitHub.

User Experience Sketches

An app doesn't live in a vacuum. Putting it into perspective as part of a user journey helps me understand what I'm building and to remember what the user is really doing.

Strangely enough, I never had a Nintendo growing up.

User Interface Sketches

Pen and paper are where I start most of the time. They let me ideate quickly without the constraints of digital tools. Plus, they often turn out to be pretty.

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:

React JSON Viewing Components

I needed to look at some semi-large JSON files. I wanted to learn React a bit more. A few hours later, this thing was born. You can grab the source or just mess with a demo of it in use.

That's some pretty spiffy looking data

But Wait, There's More!
