Think David is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Kate Pletcher
They're my school  •  Founder/CEO, Treehouse Partners and Advisory Board Member, Spark Program.
Lots of varied experience, can work with anyone, great attitude, awesome work ethic.
Elissa Swift
We worked together  •  Physician Network Development Director, Columbia University Medical Center. Columbia University in the City of New York grad.
Dave is simply a fantastic person to work with. He is friendly and unassuming, yet extremely knowledgeable, decisive, hard working, and enth ... usiastic. He is that rare breed who can both see the big picture and dive into insanely micro level details. For example, from a high level perspective, he was immediately able to hone in on the advantages of focusing my business more narrowly, and he also helped me to craft a very elegant financial model for my business plan. Highly, highly recommend.

We worked together  •  Vice President Business Development, NewYorkBIO. Previously Director of Site Planning, New York Genome Center.
Dave is bright, creative, enthusiastic, and loves to connect people together. I've known him for over 20 years and brought him into my last ... start-up project as team member #3; the company is now over 150 people and is well-known across the industry and the region. Dave was instrumental in getting us off the ground in multiple areas - marketing, business development, and even graphic design. Also a really fun guy to work with!
