More about David
I joined Blast…
Because it felt like family. The company culture and the talented team make it a wonderful place to work.
A cool part of my job is…
Building and nurturing business relationships and partnerships. I love talking to people and finding out what makes them tick.
My consulting “philosophy” is…
Don’t just talk, listen. You can learn everything you need to know by just being there and listening.
It’s not on my resume, but…
I have been an actor in 20+ theatre/musical theatre productions with my kids during the past eight years.
One of my first jobs was…
Working at a “Pizza & Pub.” The food industry has my respect. I worked there throughout high school and college. I learned what hard work was juggling school and a job, and it gave me a good base to never starve!
The most interesting place I’ve traveled is…
South Korea. In my past life, I used to service and manage large format inkjet printers and had the opportunity to visit a manufacturer in Seoul to learn. What a great experience to learn about different cultures.
My hobbies include…
Theatre, theatre and theatre. Oh, did I mention I like theatre?
A favorite quote of mine is…
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
