In the years that I have worked with David, at all times I have found him to be trustworthy, dependable, hard-working, and conscientious. He has been consulting in the field of technology development for 30 years, and holds vast understanding in business development and strategic marketing. David thinks outside of the box for solutions and is highly innovative because of this.
David thrives in technology, and recognizes business issues and the importance of time to market (TTM). From start to finish, he is accomplished in taking on the development from the visionary and strategic perspective through architecture, design, implementation, and rollout. His wide breadth of knowledge in engineering ranges from, but is not limited to, the fields of software and electronics, to firmware and mechanical.

He is therefore successful at engaging customers in all aspects: for requirements, sales support, or problem solving and analysis.
David would be a remarkable asset at any company and has my uppermost recommendation. I am pleased to provide further information if required.
