Started first tech company at 18. Became an accredited angel at 21. Raised $20MM for my own startups and VC since 2015. MBA from Dartmouth - Tuck School of Business / Advisor to MIT Entrepreneurship Program.
M&A - Led M&A on 3 outside companies, sold my own company to Capital IQ.
I had the opportunity to see David build the first stones for one of his businesses while we pursued our MBA. David showed true passion and drive to see his business through. His tenacity keeps him motivated, as was the case when one potential investor dismissed his idea altogether, and David not only persevered with his business but ultimately convinced this angel to put faith and money in that same endeavor.
David is a fantastic entrepreneur who combines a strong intuition for understanding untapped market potential with hard work and creative to create functional ideas that are likely to succeed. He is adapted at navigating the funding environment and at properly assessing and addressing risk in a variety of areas. I have had the opportunity to engage with him as developed several of his enterprises, including RoomHunt. In that time, I have seen him develop as a leader and become a strong asset to any organization.
David is a tireless entrepreneur with deep industry expertise in the consumer Internet industry. When I met David, he was running a highly profitable online ticket brokerage. He capitalized on a growing market and quickly turned his initial investment into a stable, cash flow-positive enterprise. His understanding of consumer behavior and online marketplaces is serving him equally well at his new company, RoomHunt. I give David my highest recommendation, both as a perceptive entrepreneur in a company's early stages, and as a financially savvy manager once the company gains traction.
I got a chance to get to know David through our time at the Tuck School and through the build up and launch of RoomHunt. From the onset of our interactions and working relationship, I knew that David was going to be a stellar leader in whatever endeavor he chose. He has a knack for sourcing, identifying, and executing on great business ideas, a set of skills that does not come easily for many. His entrepreneurial drive pushes him to continually step outside his comfort zone, build relationships with those around him and cultivate those into meaningful partnerships. I know David will continue to excel at RoomHunt, and lead the company to become a force to be reckoned with in the rental search engine space.
David is an extremely bright entrepreneur that does what he says he will do. His ability to come up with simple solutions to common problems, along with his knack for effective, efficient execution enables him to succeed at whatever he takes on.
David is a successful, talented, and visionary entrepreneur with whom I had the pleasure to work with at JFE Accelerator. I honestly state that under David's leadership, RoomHunt will become the industry leader and standard in the consumer real estate rental space.
David was one of the stars of the JFE accelerator. His intelligence, tenacity, and business instincts are second to none. Additionally, David always stands willing to help and mentor others. He is truly an entrepreneur to admire.

David's commitment to RoomHunt is tireless, and his ability to define and attack problems is incredible, and almost tiring just to watch. He's persistent, smart, and self effacing enough to know when he's reached the bounds of his ever-growing knowledge base, and never hesitates to ask for help. I'm excited to see what the future holds for RoomHunt, and his other projects.
