David understands digital business and e-commerce technically and creatively, and to top it off, he’s a very smart businessman. David’s the proverbial digital triple threat – the only one I know.

Ian Mirlin, Founder, Harrod & Mirlin

I have known David for many years as having been at the forefront of the internet movement from its inception and likewise with the advent of social media. Only recently have I had the joy of working with him professionally. His speed and quality of work are exceptional, but even more important to me has been his way of going far beyond the call of duty to deliver solutions that are optimal for his client. He also has that rare quality of being able to bridge the intimidating chasm between technology jargon and the language of ordinary people like me! Top qualities: Great Results, High Integrity, Creative

My work with David has been as a consultant, and other consultants should be so lucky: to find a partner like David in a leadership role. From my outsider perspective, I’ve found David’s leadership style to be unusually open, collegial, and fearless. He’s deeply and broadly curious about life, thrives on dialogue, loves intellectual and personal engagement and warmly accepts fresh thinking whatever the source. A strong value of his is a healthy and well-balanced life, not just for himself, his family and community, but for those who work for and with him. He exemplifies hard work, big picture thinking, productivity, all those good core leadership qualities, but knows how to realize them in an atmosphere of creativity, fun and,okay, I’ll risk it! – happiness.
