Hi, I'm Dave. (he/him) 🇦🇷🇨🇴

I’m a few things - an engineering manager at Primary, musician, record collector, lover of cold brew, dad, husband, horror fanatic, and bad skateboarder.

I like to build and ship in any language but I'm pretty well-versed in stuff like Javascript/React/good old jQuery, CSS, and Ruby on Rails.

Here's a list of things I've worked on: Linkedin

Update: It turns out I'm not good at traditional blogging, but having a digital garden resonates with me.

Notes may be left incomplete. Comments are welcome.

I’m looking for a new, untethered way to organize thoughts in some spatial dimensions that aren’t by chronology or topic, but more around how function in terms of connecting me to my own intuitions, the world, and to communities. It’s a work-in-progress, so for now you get this random pile of rough notes loosely organized. - Buster Benson

All raw, unedited notes can be found in my public Roam. I'll be transferring most notes to a Paper document so that I can easily receive comments.
