Hi, I'm also Dave. It's a good name. We'll try not to wear it out. #teamdave FTW. You'll see me on the list as "Dave B."

I don't remember exactly when I joined the hive but I think it was around 2010. I think I was the 24th member? I served as CTO for a year and board member for a year. I let my membership lapse for while but have been active again since around 2017. I run the monthly electronics meetup @ the Hive, Sparks! I don't normally make a lot of meetings but I do stuff.(tm) I help out a lot with the learn to solder outreach and I have a big truck which means that I volunteer to haul stuff around a lot.

One side of how I support myself is selling various automotive-related electronic devices that I've designed/built/manufactured. I am very familiar with things automotive and electrical. Electronic design an troubleshooting. PCB Design and soldering. I've worked with local contract electronic manufacturers for commercial projects.

Slowly learning robotics / motion control.

Current projects include building a OpenPNP based pick and place machine, sanitizing / improving a T962A reflow oven, building a small coffee roaster and repairing / refurbishing / cannibalizing a box of broken espresso machines obtained from my uncle.

I like food, coffee, dark beer, fast cars and the great outdoors. I spend most of my time not-work related doing family stuff. Sometimes you'll see one or both of my daughters with me at the Hive and extremely rarely my wife.

If you need to get in touch with me either mail the list or blundar at gmail or hit me up on Slack. I don't do slack on phone so email will reach me faster in general.
