David Gary Wood

Now, December 31, 2022


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 in 2017.

I like to help people find their way in tech. I mentor people looking to get into the industry, and particularly like to look after those going into iOS and Swift development. The more the merrier!

Day to day

I work full time for an awesome company where I support and manage fantastic teams of mobile engineers. They keep me very busy, and I love it.

In my spare time I work on my indie iOS apps, record my podcast Waiting For Review , build Lego and spend time with my family. I photograph interesting things when I go for walks.


I record a podcast Waiting For Review .

Daniel Jilg of TelemetryDeck fame has been my cohost on the shows since Jan ‘22. I love catching up with him every couple of weeks.

iOS indie projects

I love making apps that do creative things with video.

Indie projects that I’m proud of include:

I decided two side projects were not quite enough, so I’m also working on:


I have a collection of short stories, on Smashwords: 100 words .
