Hi, I’m David
I’m driven, curious, and I haven’t met a challenge that I shied away from
By day, I’m a Product Manager. I’m fascinated by the intersection of real human problems and responsible technology.
I was lucky to be on the Minerva Schools founding team and co-created the Minerva Active Learning Forum.
Since then, I’ve been a part of Hired and then Microsoft, leading growth for the launch of Azure DevOps.
And now, happily, I’m part of Google Cloud.
In my free time, I think about the future and write stories.
Writing fiction is a gateway to exploration. This is a new thing for me, but I’ll be publishing them here soon.
- Tailored: A meditation on ambition – Coming soon
- Telling numbers & other points of view – Coming soon
On the side, I toy around with human/computer interaction through code.
Right now, I’m particularly interested in reading history and speculative fiction.
Some favorites from my bookshelf:
- Bone Clocks, David Mitchell
- The Great Believers, Rebecca Makkai
- The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood
- Story of Your Life, Ted Chiang
- A Little Life, Hanya Yanagihara
- Sapiens, Yuval Noah Harari
- The Ghost Map, Steven Johnson
