I'm Dave,

A London-based web developer currently building Control Space.

I pride myself on a tight mix of technical and creative with a passion for product, innovation and experimentation :

My commercial work is primarily enterprise web apps after years of agency sites and before that titles animation.

I’ve recently resumed writing so you can look forward to clear, researched and actionable thinking.
