About Me

David Leininger

I like to consider myself a professional nerd. My brain is constantly torn between creativity and logic. I love finding examples of good UI and will dev-splain how to fix bad UI to anyone within earshot.

I am a Staff Software Engineer for Design Systems and Accessibility at The New York Times, where I help design and build websites and apps. When I'm not at work, I volunteer with the live streaming at church, and I help run production at several Catholic youth conferences around the country. I live in St. Louis with my amazing wife and daughter two three daughters four kids. They are all too good for me, but slum it with me because I’m kind of funny, I have power tools, and I'm an average cook.

Extra Credit:

I am a diehard Blues fan, LFC fan, and recently became a St Louis City SC fan. I'm a self-proclaimed pizza sommelier, and I could spend hours talking about the merits of pizza. I believe that breakfast food is the best kind of food. I don’t drink coffee, but I love coffee shops. I eat cupcakes by turning them into sandwiches. I like good bourbon. I have a lot of tattoos. I like building things with power tools. I've been to 49 states – here's looking at you Alaska.
