David values integrity, reliability, respect, trust, and open communication in his life.

In his spare time, David enjoys playing video games, playing percussion instruments, playing tabletop games, and trying out and hacking technologies. His latest ongoing projects and accomplishments include automating his home using Z-Wave and ZigBee with Groovy, as well as implementing a SiriProxy server at home while creating plugins to accomplish day to day tasks around the home in Ruby.
