Pinned toot

Welp everybody's cool/interesting intros are making me nervous to do my own, but apparently everybody auto-follows me on join so I should do an too 😅

I'm David (he/him)! I help write and maintain open source software at a company called HashiCorp. I'm also a musician (🎹🎺🗣🎙) and I've been in a couple singer/songwriter and folk groups. I'm on a couple albums and am super proud of them! You can take a listen if you want 😬

birdsite is down, and normally i’d post about that kind of thing ON birdsite, so my brain is just going in a loop trying to open birdsite's app and post about it before remembering i can't 🙃

😍 got the first shipment of the subscription i won!! and they sent a dope mug too 😭

did u know that that if you (for some reason) have leftover fried chicken from, it makes a dope ass chicken salad? it’s true. good mayo, celery, red onion, tarragon, chives, and a splash of lemon juice 😗👌

i made the Bûche de Noel this year!! lots of nerve-wracking firsts for me:

first , first (which separated and then got too hard when it set), first (didn’t get much of a roll tbh) and first (unfortunately not pictured… it ultimately ended up fine but i didn’t have time to get the mushrooms assembled)

hello i made these phyllo canapés with brie, cranberry, and rosemary may i please be on the great british bake-off now

might be on an indian food kick… made some paneer saag and chicken makhani in the ol’ instant pot

homemade teriyaki salmon bowl with cucumber, avocado, green onions, and a sprinkling of furikake. even made the sauce!
