David Nabb B.Sc (Hons)
Developer & Engineer
David likes a challenge! He has over 30 years of corporate IT and business experience mostly in technology but more recently in leadership, innovation, creativity and problem solving being key threads throughout. Personal challenges too! Father of 3, partner to a head chef, Pom by birth emigrating in '99, Sheffield Wednesday fan, amateur DJ, mentor, many competitive events culminating in 2 Ironmans, a marathon & a 5km open water swim, cyclist and most other bucket list items ticked. An enduring passion for code, technology and finding creative and innovative solutions especially to problems others have failed to solve led him the graphic design & web design/dev space as a sideline focussing on local/small businesses & start-ups. Plus a realisation that the potential for blockchain and crytocurrencies is huge led to the ultimate challenge when he offered his services to Tim & the team and Tim accepted!
Community and Education
Shelton and his partner have successfully raised 2 fur babies. He has been known to dabble in the odd adrenaline filled sport and has a passion for technology and people. He ranks eating good food and coffee pretty highly also. His blockchain journey began after realizing its potential was far greater than just a currency, excited by its promise and opportunities. He brings with him over 20 years’ experience across may different industries from Insurance, Local Government, Hospitality to Not for Profits. His passion for training and education saw him thrive on the never ending challenge of translating techie speak to non-techies. He loves the Hut because his alter ego is a chatbot!
