Hello and welcome to my website! I’m David Schlenk. I’m an extremely online dad and this is where I occasionally blog about things. I’m a husband, father and a software engineer. I live with my family and assorted animals, both living and stuffed, in a suburb of Minneapolis in Minnesota. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching baseball, reading, messing around with hobby electronics, and thrifting. I’m pictured here trying to stay warm in the software mines with my emotional support Santa Bear.

Besides my extremely occasional blog posts, you can also find evidence of my existence on various socials: on the bird website, I mostly post pictures of hymns, talk about Winnie the Pooh, retweet funny and encouraging things I find, and yell at the brands that have wronged me. Over on the gram, I post a photo whenever I or a loved one spills their lunch, which, sadly, does not occur as often as it did in the Before Times, when going out for lunch didn’t require a complicated evaluation of impact on personal and public health. I also have a face.

Thanks for stopping by! If you like what you read, feel free to drop me a note – I’d love to hear from you!
