David is a product guy with a passion for making the human experience better through the use of technology, process redesign, or plain old reduction of complexity. His life motto is, “It’s not only the destination, but the journey that defines us."
With any good voyage, one is expected to gain invaluable experiences along the way and David has made it a point to do just that. If there were an all-star team for business, technology, and creativity, then he would be the big man on the court. He has honed his skills through time spent working for the US Army in Intelligence, started and closed his own small businesses, and worked at a highly profitable startup, In addition to obtaining all of this real world experience, he also has the paper to back him up; including, a Masters in Information Technology, a Dual Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing & Finance, Six Sigma GB certification, and PMI - PMP certification. David is also counted amongst the gladiators of innovation as an Alumnus of the General Assembly product management course.
Today, he is working as a Product & Program Manager for various projects revolving around natural language processing and human language technologies. When he is not being a super star husband and dad of 3 (plus his giant schnauzer), David is working to save the world by envisioning new products, and working on his startup. In the rare event that there is spare time, David enjoys traveling, adventure racing (he’s a Spartan) and spending time in the great outdoors.
In this ten-week course, students will learn to navigate the product cycle, from evaluating users and managing a roadmap to creating an MVP and developing metrics.
