You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Valuation • Private equity • Financial Modeling • Management consulting • Strategy

Key Accomplishments

I'm a lower risk, lean start-up mold of entrepreneur who likes to stay laser focused on our target market in order to generate growth, profits, and pivot ideas quickly. I love using cutting edge technology to disrupt traditional businesses. I've found that my MBA is essential to my success in developing new business ideas and leading teams from across the world.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I like to implement ideas very quickly, so my teams need to be smart and driven.

As an Advisor

I take my advisor responsibilities seriously. I'll work hard, but the entrepreneur must work twice as hard to implement our mutually agreed recommendations.

Vouch for them.

Kevin Keepper
We worked together  •  Senior Consultant, Capgemini Consulting. Previously Strategy Analyst, American Airlines.
David has a contagious hunger for business and keen eye for what works and what does not work in a business. He has never failed to provide ... me with a unique perspective and also to encourage the deepening of my own pursuits. He has an ability to dabble in multiple areas of business while still understanding where his core strengths lie and remaining transparent about this in a way that actually adds to the credibility of his advisory service in non-core areas.
Khanjan (Kuki) Gandhi
We worked together  •  Data Scientist with extensive experience in analytics and technology.
David is a great business partner. He has a keen sense of business and facilitates a great working environment. He is super responsive and t ... urns complex business problems into simple ones.

David is one of the sharpest individuals I have ever met. He pays great attention to detail and he's a wiz at number crunching. He puts 11 ... 0% into everything he does and does so with great passion, energy, and drive.



Paula is ambitious and smart. Not only does she have a law degree from Northeastern University, Paula went back to Emory's Goizueta Business ... School to get her MBA. With Paula's experience and background, she would be valuable to any organization, large or small,... old or new.

Christopher Walker
Founder & CEO, Reserv.Me and Founder & CEO, SalonsOPEN.com.
Christopher is a true entrepreneur. He keeps refining, developing, and perfecting everything he tries. His latest venture focuses on online ... booking and customer loyalty. Christopher is smart and ambitious guy who would be the perfect founder for any business.

Khanjan (Kuki) Gandhi
We worked together  •  Data Scientist with extensive experience in analytics and technology.
In the world of crazy type A entrepreners, you need someone who will consolidate opinions, organize tasks, and execute on plans. If a skill ... is missing in a team, Khanjan learns the process and then finishes the assignment. She is resourceful, accurate, and driven.

Calvin J. Klaski, EIT
They're my advisor  •  Continuous Process Improvement Engineer, Fathom 4, LLC and Staff Sergeant, West Virginia Air National Guard.
Calvin can generate lots of ideas, but it's his analytical ability that separates good ideas from the rest.
