Hello, I’m David.

I’m from Seattle, by way of Detroit, and I enjoy finding new insights about questions and problems, simple or complex.

I have over a decade of experience in:

  • design research, helping build more human-centered services and products

  • public service, connecting tech workers and startups to information and resources

  • leadership, organizing and supporting communities locally and internationally
