Dave was born and raised in New York. After 17 years of changing leaves, losing hockey seasons, and lots of bagels, he packed his bags and took the road show to Duke University. At Duke, he studied Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Duke Basketball. While there, Dave worked in research labs that focused on high throughput genomics. It was there that he became extremely cognizant of the increasing size of data sets and the looming importance of big data.
Four years and one Wojo jersey later, Dave moved to Austin, Texas to work on healthcare facility design. It just so happened that the same firm operated in a new discipline called data center design. With practitioners at the firm doing both types of work, he too made the transition and the rest is history. Dave’s big data experiences being tapped, he felt the need to forge a deeper understanding of enterprise architecture and the orchestration of business applications. As a result he he moved to Hewlett-Packard and their Technology Services group. He became a Senior Consultant, advising Fortune 500 firms and public entities alike in numerous vertical markets both domestic and internationally.
In 2012, Dave was presented with the opportunity to become Director of Technology at Modular Power Solutions, a data center power systems company. It was a perfect fit, considering his unique understanding of IT spaces from both a virtual and physical perspective. Since then, he has led product design, research, and development.
Dave is a licensed Professional Engineer, avid New York Islanders fan, and sub 10% shooter from outside the arc.
