Hi, I'm Dave and I write code. In my career I've created solutions for a wide variety of industries. From industrial control systems for the electronics and automotive industries to GIS and statistical analysis software for the oil industry, software for call centres, the NHS and an SaaS ERP system for the catering industry. I currently work for a global engineering firm as lead developer for a suite of mobile apps built with Xamarin and provide support to a team creating a predictive analytics platform for the water industry using IoT and Blazor technologies.

When not writing code, my passion is watching motorcycle racing. From MotoGP to World Superbike, British Superbike, Dakar and the Africa Eco Race, where I sponsored a team in 2020, if it has two wheels and an engine I'll watch it race! 🏍🏍🏍
