Dave has spent the majority of his professional career doing analysis and product management in the telecommunications and technology field. In late 2004, after his former company was purchased for its technology, Dave listened to the urgings of a Thai former school pal and headed over to Thailand and see what fate had in store.
In 2006, Dave met Chris Sanderson and the AMWSO crew. The performance marketing industry instantly appealed to Dave with its entrepreneurial, marketing and web-based aspects. Chris Sanderson also saw great potential with the application of Dave's experience in technology and marketing in the pay for performance field. Dave joined AMWSO and quickly took over responsibility for the management of several programs, for expanding AMWSO reach into the Asian region, and participated in business development activities.
