Best Places to Work
Believing that people are the key to a successful services business, David began early in his career surrounding himself with the best people, treating them like family, and giving them the tools necessary to do outstanding work for the firm’s clients. Today, those efforts have paid off. The San Francisco Business Times has ranked TEECOM as one of the top 100 fastest growing companies, as well as one of the top 20 best places to work. David has led by example to create a company where all employees work toward the same goal: integrating forward-thinking and innovative ideas and technology into architecture that is practical and aligns with the business objectives of the firm’s clients.
Earth and Beyond
Since childhood, David has been mesmerized by outer space. His yearning for the great unknown was accelerated when he received his first telescope, the Celestron 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain. Exploring planets, moons, rings, stars, galaxies, and shuttles gives him a tiny glimpse of how the world works, and looking out onto other planets millions of miles away is how David puts the everyday stresses of Earth into perspective.

Exact grind? ✓
It’s not chemistry class; it’s David’s daily ritual: brewing coffee. With what he considers the ultimate technology—the Stanford-engineer-designed AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker—he brews a technically perfect cup of coffee every morning. Whether it’s buttery, caramelly, chocolatey, or smokey, David loves testing different beans and brewing methods to create a cup of coffee that actually tastes as good as the scent of freshly ground beans.
Decreasing the Carbon Footprint
David is a Quantified Self pioneer who is steadily realizing a goal to improve life through data analysis. He uses FitBit to track his daily steps, Daytum to document and categorize travel distances, Automatic to analyze his auto emissions, and Wi-Things to maintain fitness. Data tracking has enabled him to shrink his carbon footprint and share his knowledge with others.
