I’m David Curley. I’ve been a software developer, consultant, technical author, course designer, trainer, conference speaker, systems integrator, information security architect, full time dad, and web entrepreneur.  I’ve lived and worked in the UK and the San Francisco Bay Area and all over Europe.  If you know me from any of those worlds, drop me a line and say hello!

Since 2017, I’ve been designing voice experiences for Amazon’s Alexa voice platform. In 2019 I became one of the first to achieve the AWS certified Alexa Skill Builder certification. I now design and build custom Alexa skills for myself and others.

My Alexa work has been recognised! In 2019 one of my skills was picked as a Finalist out of over 400 entries in the global Amazon Alexa Skills Challenge: Multimodal. You can read about that here.

Laldy Labs is a portfolio for some of my voice work.

Check out the blog area for information about skills.

For developers, there’s a YouTube channel with demos, tutorials and tips.
