Books, Building and Coding
When not coding or coming up with new features for Slingshot, David loves being in the garden building something whether that be new decking or garden tiers, alternatively being indoors watching a sci-fi film or TV series. He's obsessed with coffee and enjoys trying new blends and collecting different coffee devices from a percolator to a Chemex, a French Press and more. He also loves reading anything he can get hold of and collecting vintage books.
