About David

I've been involved in the ideation and early stages of many startups over the past 10 years. Most fail (thats the game :)), but several have succeeded and are successful, venture-backed companies. At this point I have significant experience at all stages of a startups lifecycle (prototype, early traction, fundraising, growth, exits, etc). I feel I am particularly strong on the product, technical, project management, and development (particularly front-end development.) Last summer I decided I want to be fully hands on and be able to bootstrap my own projects, so I completed a coding bootcamp. I've now built a few apps using ReactJS & React Native.
