Hi, I'm Dave.

I'm a father and a husband, a passionate gardener and a lover of compost. I think it's important to speak for the trees - whatever happens to them will happen to us.

I like to read with a cup of coffee, watch movies with my children (we have three), split firewood in the cold, and plant fruit/nut trees. I write code for a living now, but I spent over a decade of my life as a US Navy SEAL Officer.

I will be writing about all the things one might expect, having read the sentences above. But I'm also going to be intentionally unfocused. Some blogs and writers have a really tight focus to facilitate branding and growth. I will not be doing this.

One poast (yes, this is the correct spelling - everyone else has it wrong) might be about parenting, another about gardening, another about how peoples' opinions of the British royal family drama highlights how incapable we are of instinctually understanding the current media landscape, and another might be a war story.

There will be profanity.

Most of you will have found me via Twitter, but if not, come say hi before the babyman burns it to the ground!
