David Gary Wood


Now, June 24, 2020


I’m David Wood, I live in Te Whanganui-a-tara, New Zealand with my wife, our two children, and our cat Monty. We emigrated here from the UK nearly 3 years ago.

Day to day

At the end of February, I banged my head and suffered a concussion. It has been several months of recovery already, and I’m still only at 60-70% of my former capability. I’ve slowed down. I had to, whether I wanted to or not.

I currently work part-time for my full-time job (iOS developer for an awesome kiwi company). I’m working remotely, mainly, from home. I’m ramping up this time over the next few weeks, as I return back to full time work.

In my spare time I rest, do light reading, tinker a little with my indie projects, and take a daily walk. I photograph interesting things I find on my walk.

Since New Zealand is now out of COVID lockdown, I run with friends on Saturday morning.


I record a podcast, weekly Waiting For Review with my friend Dave Nott. We talk about iOS development, tech and the Apple eco system.

iOS indie projects

Since concussing myself, I’ve had to park most of my indie development. As I regain capability I’m coming back to projects again in my spare time, but slowly. Indie projects that I’m proud of include GoVJ , AirSynth and HoloVid .


I’m working on a collection of short stories, each no more than 100 words. I’d like to release this before the end of 2020.
