About David

I love to live at the intersection of product and development. What features should a product have? What value do those features provide to customers and to the business, how much do they cost to implement? How do you prioritize? How do you implement? That's where it's fun for me.

My tools are storyboards, wireframes, post-it notes, specs, and code. Lately I've been working on Mongo, Express, React, and Node building web applications that run both on the desktop and on mobile. In the early stages I can code, as we grow I can break the work up and divvy it out and make sure it all works together to accomplish the goals in the end.

I am especially interested in civic innovation or social good projects that involve harnessing the power of people working together. If you have an idea in this realm, I'd love to brainstorm about it.
