David has had two beliefs instilled in him since childhood. Lesson 1: If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. Lesson 2: You see things not as they are, but as you are. These maxims fuel David’s desire to understand people’s goals and what motivates them. As a Foundation Inventor, David helps capture those learnings by uncovering insights that are sharp, compelling and fresh.
Before embarking on a career in strategy and innovation, David studied political science at Northwestern University. Moving from Chicago to New York, David tested theory against practice at a number of places including the Miami Ad School, an innovative advertising agency, a major consumer packaging company, and a start-up e-commerce turtleneck business. The results of the test to date: the world is a far more interesting, and surprising, place than it lets on.
Outside of work, David enjoys playing piano and seeking victory over his friends in multiple fantasy sports leagues.
