About David

I love working with start-up and early stage businesses and the entrepreneurs who launch them!

A C-level executive, director, and attorney with significant experience leading, developing and operating high growth companies in the software, technology, manufacturing, and communications sectors, with a track record of developing creative solutions/strategies and building/leading teams to achieve objectives.

I have led organizations and managed both teams and projects. I have created something from nothing. I have brought fresh thinking to challenged organizations, and I have made the successful more successful. Collectively, my business and legal experience provide a firm foundation from which I seek creative solutions to complex problems and a platform from which I strive to simplify the complicated.
