About me

Thought Leadership and Brand Journalism Consultant.

Hi, I'm David!


I help leaders, executives and entrepreneurs discover their voice
and create new conversations. Whether it's ghostwriting, blogging
or brainstorming, I enjoy helping people craft compelling stories
and narratives in ways they never would have considered.


I've always been fascinated by the people who are changing the world with new technologies, ideas and companies. My job is to
help those founders, executives and industry leaders uncover their unique point-of-view and express their perspectives in a way that changes the conversation.

Whether your goals are to enhance your blog, amplify your message on podcasts or even write a book, I'll help you craft the perfect message on the right channels.

I've studied history, culture, and esoteric philosophy which informs my unique understanding of technology and how it impacts the world we live in. I've even worked "in the trenches" in Silicon Valley at a startup that went on to be acquired by GE for over $900 million. 


I also attend conferences and events globally as a press and media member, regularly interacting with some of the most well-known business and cultural leaders both in and outside the technology space. I'll help you get plugged into the right networks and circles to expand your reach.

I currently reside in Thailand as a naturalized citizen and enjoy reading, culinary tourism and any activities involving wild animals and nature. At present, I'm reading books on brand journalism, angel investing and ancient underwater civilizations.

My professional mission is to help you find your voice, tell your story and uncover hidden intellectual gems that will create entirely new dialogues within your industry.​
