About Dave

I'm pursing the delivery of exciting new experiences via technology (mobile, GPS, Augmented Reality, and more) to invigorate historic, tourist railroads. Merging the past, embracing the present and promoting their future sustainability. With 25+ years IT technical experience inside corporate environments, I'm pursuing my passion for supporting heritage railroads with hi-tech ideas (and I've got lots of ideas). I've done analysis on competition, some basic field research on the market, interviewed consumers and a few RR operators. While I'm confident my product vision is viable, I have no experience forming a start up team nor bringing a product to a consumer market.
I'm looking for seasoned partner / advisor to join me, preferably w/similar passion to preserve & promote the legacy of RR's with new solutions, to maintain operational viability for a new generation. Experience coordinating successful product build/launch, biz development, marketing, etc. are all needed.
