David’s career path began at age 11. Fascinated with technology and the introduction of personal computers, he visualized transforming his creativity and ideas into software and imagery. He designed games on his first computer — an Apple IIE — then learned that marketing his creations was even more fulfilling than coding them. It was this realization that steered David toward a career in marketing.
David has come a long way since his early obsession with computers. At Microsoft, he played a key role in launching the groundbreaking Windows operating system and Microsoft Office. Later, he moved to Silicon Valley to work with game-changing companies such as Farallon, Netopia, Ellie Mae and his first startup, Resounding — the pioneering company that introduced Internet-based voice communication that transformed multiplayer gaming and VoIP forever.
Today, David is a highly sought-after speaker and instructor of the art and science of marketing, and coaches modern marketing leaders to become digital marketing masters.
