Software Architect at AOL. Entrepreneur on the side. Also blogger and father of four.
Dave is both great manager and a technical architect. His technical skills are top notch. As an architect, he can motivate and convince developers to follow his guidelines not through the force of his position, but by showing them clearly that his approach and recommendations will make the team more successful. In the most stressful situations he never looses his cool and the smile.
I enjoy working with Dave. He's smart, organized and goal oriented person. Under Dave's management his team is making great progress and sets a good example for other groups in AOL.
