Find Essential


This website is the the personal page of me, David Hood. It serves as a place to collect thoughts and ideas on a wide range of topics. I am a social worker who has focused is career on adults with developmental disabilities, at-risk youth, and those facing the challenges of homelessness. Beyond these issues I have long been interested in design, technology, self-improvement, and nature.

This website reflects my ideal website design philosphy. It is unencumbered by the bloat, flash, and anti-features that are found all across the we today. This site is hosted on Neocities, which itself is trying to bring the best of the old web and marry it with the new.
