About

Dave has always enjoyed taking things apart to see how they worked; fixing if broke or not working the way he wanted. This curiosity is what fuels his desire to create new web applications and enhance existing ones. He also feels quite awkward referring to himself in the third person and has never had any screws left over after fixing a web application.
