David is Co-founder at Sibme and a proponent of educating the "whole child," as well as inquiry and project-based learning when executed well. He started a Future Business Leaders of America chapter and a student run school store at a title-one high school in the Houston Independent School District.

He also developed an annual business plan competition through his microeconomics classes at a nationally-ranked college prep charter school where his students presented their plans in teams to investors, entrepreneurs, and college professors at the Jones Graduate School of Business, Rice University.

Dave also co-developed an experimental class with a chemistry teacher that merged science, technology, and entrepreneurship, giving students the opportunity to conduct research with local college professors and learn about raising capital and commercializing an idea. Two teams he helped coach from the class qualified for the Lemelson - MIT InventTeams competition in Boston and the Spirit of Innovation challenge sponsored by the Conrad Foundation in Mountain View, CA. Dave believes that with the right support and tools, teachers and school administrators can collaborate with each other to solve their own problems organically. In his spare time, he reads voraciously, jogs in the park, and plays golf and ice hockey.
