Background

About David

I'm a designer, writer, strategist and mentor; connector of people and resources. I design and develop ideas > products > projects > systems > ecosystems.

I've done marketing for engineers, engineering for marketers; development for designers, design for developers; team-building for companies and company-building for teams.

I support founders, startup teams, business starts and emerging companies and organizations, offering a scope of design-centric services not found in incubators and accelerators, but in concert with them.

I published Invent! Magazine and built it to 20,000 circ, bootstrapped, in three years. I've designed, consulted on, or have been a principal in several startups, nonprofits and companied in a variety of industries.

If you can use a "Renaissance Man" type who can wear more than one hat, contact me.
