Hi, I'm Dave.

I'm a developer, maker, and activist, based in the UK. I'm also queer, autistic, and disabled.

Finding work is hard, as I need to work remotely, so I'm constantly working on stuff. Open source doesn't pay the bills, though, so I've decided to launch a Patreon.

If you'd like to support what I do, and get some shiny perks to say thanks, then please consider becoming a Patron. No matter which tier you choose, know that it will make a very real impact on my life, and I hope I can return the favour with my content.
