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.
