Key Accomplishments

A technology leader and entrepreneur for more than 20 years, David has been building and scaling innovative online services since the days of 300 baud modems and 20MB hard drives. As CTO/co-founder of enterprise social media startup CoTweet (acquired by ExactTarget) and CTO for (acquired by AOL), David delivered highly successful outcomes while inspiring teams and having fun along the way. He also co-founded (acquired by Comcast), and in the earliest days of the web helped build one of the world’s first massively multiplayer online gaming systems, The ImagiNation Network (acquired by AT&T). Those experiences have brought David a deep understanding of how to rapidly scale both technology stacks and organizations in the face of relentless change, experience which he applies at the collection of fast-growing startups he currently advises, including Wanelo, True & Company and LiveFyre. He is also CTO at Freestyle Capital.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I could potentially take the CEO role with another technical co-founder, or I could team with a strong/experienced CEO as CTO. I have run product organizations in addition to engineering, and am well versed in fundraising, recruiting, business and corporate development, etc.

As an Advisor

I work closely with the CEO and/or CTO of the organization, sharing my experience and advice around technology and software development issues, fundraising, scaling the team and processes, product strategy, instrumentation & analytics, growth hacking and more.
