"David has the very valuable ability to create opportunity where none appears present."

Meet David

I’m fascinated by innovation, passionate about identifying game-changing technologies and bringing them to market.

I have taken various stage companies from early and mid-stage growth to their successful acquisition.   

I am actively seeking new opportunities as a mentor, advisor and open to hands-on roles.

I have a broad technical background with the ability to quickly formulate and articulate business and product strategy.  

I help companies create compelling differentiation, succinctly message their value proposition and maximize the customer experience. 

My methodology is based on:

  • creating winning partnerships 
  • building on communication and trust
  • establishing strong networks 
  • executing customer-concentric strategies

My areas of focus: enterprise software, data science, sustainable/renewable technologies (energy, food & water), material science, synthetic biology, precision medicine, food and Ag tech, DeFi, blockchain, and Web 3.0.


“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

President Calvin Coolidge​

Receiving Global Red Herring Award for StrongBox Data Solutions, LLC.


My career spans over 25 years of launching businesses and bringing solutions to global markets. Proven success scaling direct, channel, and OEM sales targeting enterprise, SMB, and government customers.

I spent a decade living abroad immersed in local communities, which has gifted me with a global view of markets and a unique perspective when tackling challenges, understanding competitive landscapes, and uncovering hidden opportunities.

I believe in conscious leadership and I have an insatiable curiosity that drives me to ask “why not.”

It has been my honor to support NASA and JPL.

I have advised startup founders, global companies, and high-level executives, from one-time vision storms to ongoing strategy sessions and hands-on tactical execution. 

I welcome the opportunity to share ideas regarding technology, life, and the future.
