David and Suzi
We are currently living in South Seattle. We just celebrated our five year anniversary. Throughout the week, you’ll find us hanging out at home with our friends, working out, and being a part of our church community. A good weekend consists of a productive morning, brunch somewhere like the London Plane or the Barking Frog, walking around the city, and a coffeeshop like Ada’s or Caffe Vita.
In mid-2018, we welcomed our first daughter into the family. So now we spend a lot of time hanging out with her and introducing her to new things, and I drink about twice as much coffee as before. I briefly considered buying davidandsuzi.family.
David tweets as @davidchizzle, codes on Github as davidchang, has a Facebook, and puts career related things on LinkedIn. He got his start with content publishing in high school on Xanga, but that is far too embarrassing to link here. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
He currently works as a front end engineer at Airbnb; past companies include Facebook, TUNE, and Amazon.
Technologies he enjoys:
- React, React Native
Some things he’s done:
- working on internal service tools for Airbnb’s trust and safety agents
- developed Facebook’s web-based TV Apps
- presented this meetup talk at SeattleJS about optimizing React/Redux apps
- developed the TUNE marketing console
- came up with ngReact, a library to render React components within Angular apps (2k+ stars on Github)
- lived in San Francisco proper for a few months, in North Panhandle, which meant many runs through Golden Gate Park
- held these jobs in high school: Arby’s cashier, sound technician
- held these jobs in college: dishwasher, musician, RA, tutor, and web developer
- a few full marathons (Seattle Marathon, Seattle Rock n Roll)
- read a whole bunch of Tim Keller books
Suzi is pursuing creative endeavors at humbleflourishings.com. After graduating with a music degree from the University of Oklahoma, she moved to Seattle and has spent time working in accounts payable at a small cruise company as well as currently being a secretary at a small family law firm. Some of her creative interests include graphic design, photography, and calligraphy. Besides that, she has invested much time growing the women’s ministry at our church as well as volunteering at a juvenile detention center with REST.
She doesn’t blog here a lot (David tried to get her to do it more often, but it’s been a matter of years; it doesn’t help that this is a Markdown blog without a real UI, as it’s just Github hosted). But you can keep up with her on Instagram.
