Key Accomplishments

I co-founded Tribal Shout, an audio blogging company, in 2005. This was before iPhone and Twitter - an early social networking platform. The true startup experience was exhilarating and I've been in start ups ever since. Most recently I was the first employee after the co-founders in a hardware/software startup handling 5 different positions. I love the idea that everyone jumps in to make sure everything gets done effectively, and hire the best when necessary.

Ted Green

Scott Lucas
We worked together  •  Consultant, The Argyle Group. Previously Senior Director, Strategic Alliances, Juniper Networks. Stanford grad. Stanford GSB grad.
Dave's an incredibly smart and curious guy who can tackle just about any technical challenge - either from an individual contributor or a le ... adership perspective. I've known him for a long time, and in that period of time he's successfully run OEM integration teams, product management teams, and engineering teams. As a co-founder, Dave would bring a great blend of creativity, insight, hard work, and professionalism to the partnership. Startups need people who can wear lots of hats - and Dave is just that kind of guy.
Evan Parker
We worked together  •  Product Line Leadership, SDN/NFV, Calix and Director, Product Management, Fastback Networks.
Dave is a great entrepreneur. I worked for him at his first startup, Tribal Shout, where he came up with the idea, established the engineer ... ing team, and found the angel investors to get it off the ground. I also worked with him for his second startup, Fastback Networks, where he is VP of Product Management. There, Dave is instrumental in the product definition and execution which has led to the creation of the fastest, lowest latency non-line-of-sight small-cell backhaul radio available on the market today.
Gerald Horkan
We worked together  •  Investment Manager, Crispin Capital Management, LLC. Previously General Partner, Crispin Capital Management, LLC. Stanford GSB grad.
Dave is an amazing engineer, manager and person. I have known him for almost 30 years and am always impressed with his insights and ability ... to get things done.
