They're my friends  •  Sales/Support Engineer, Magor Corp. Previously President, LoBenn Inc..
David looks at things from a different perspective than most. He looks for the root of things and is always interested in finding a better w ... ay, and has on many occasions. I have worked with David for almost 2 decades and his deep thinking, sharing attitude and ideas of how things could be have been the catalyst of some great conversations and debates. He has demonstrated to me many times that he can quickly identify snags and rat holes and has saved me from wasting countless hours chasing bad ideas. He is a great sounding board and possesses a mind that can see the big picture. To me he is already a great entrepreneur.
