Who is Dave?

I’m a 40 year old Silicon Valley high tech professional working in Technology, Corporate Development / Mergers & Acquisitions. In my spare time, I’m an inveterate traveler who has lived in or traveled to over 120 countries, a volunteer pilot with Doctors without Borders, an active participant with the World Affairs Council of San Francisco, a competitive doubles volleyball player and marathoner, Junior Achievement mentor, and community big brother.

I’ve come to realize over the years how incredibly fortunate I am to grow up in a loving family with close parents, a big brother, a little sister, and now a recently added perfect little nephew. I’m the first to admit that much of my success in life is due to luck, born in the States where I was able to study and play without worrying about having enough food on the table, running water, and flushing toilets. As such, I’m passionate about helping those who are less fortunate than myself.

Thaks for the mission you are accomplishing in my country. I am glad that there are people like you around this world. I am Colombian and i am open to help in your cause if you need any help in Bogota, city where i live.
Good luck with your projects.

Wow, Dave. I just read the article on you at work and am very touched by all the work you do to change lives. How inspiring to see that there are people like you in the world and that you are "real" and not someone who plays with this type of stuff only when it's convenient. I hope your story inspires others to get involved.



I am very inspired by your work, and more by your blog and how you are educating those around you and encouraging others to get invloved. You are making it easy for them to see where there money is going.

I would like to do something similar in Ghana Africa where I spent some time traveling in 2003. I became friends with a man who started a "after schoo/work" program for orphaned kids that must work during the day to survive and have not been able to forget his work or the kids.

Can you offer me any advice to get started? And I would really like to start a blog similar to yours, but do not know how to do this. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,


Hi Dave, I just stopped by your site, remarkable work.
I noticed the word Angel in your website domain name. I believe its no accident.
