Tying a scientific, linguistic mentality to code.

About me

Hey there! I'm David Dales!

I'm a Front-End Web Developer based in Toronto.

Ever since I can remember, technology has been a highly influential part of my life. Fascinated with how digital technology works, I have often turned to computers as a way to improve real-life experiences, and as a versatile creative outlet. I take pride in creating projects that empower and inspire others in the same way that they have empowered and inspired myself.

I have dedicated much of my life to studying Mandarin, and as a result, I am pretty fluent and often write blog articles in the language. Recently, I have been translating technical blog posts for CSS, HTML, JS and jQuery.
