We worked together  •  Founder, Elemental: "Industrial Equipment with Co-Working Comforts" / Opto-Mechanical Consultant, Konstant Products /
I worked with Dave at OrbOptronix for a little over a year. He was the president, and I was a consultant. At the time Orb was still very n ... ew, growing in several directions, and could have easily tripped over it's own feet a number of times. I was always impressed by Dave's ability to think things out in a rational way, and actually listen to what people had to say. This ability to think before acting, combined with his experience, and desire to make the most of whatever he is doing make him a great entrepreneur.
