About Me

Hi! I’m Dave - a software developer and wannabe cartoonist who likes adventure games, superhero movies, and Kotlin. By day, I’m a mild-mannered Android developer who codes in Kotlin. But come nightfall, I’m… also coding… in Kotlin… because one day I just sat down and was like, “dude, Kotlin’s legit… I should make a website about it”.

And that’s what’s up.
