For nearly three decades, David has been solving problems with technology. A coder and developer at heart, David loves programming – especially when he’s able to use it to help people solve mission-critical business issues. With the founding of DaVinci Education, David brought his extensive business background to the challenges of healthcare education.
At Duke School of Medicine, David served as the chief technologist behind BlueDocs, the precursor to Leo. Now the solutions he architected in the Leo platform are actively improving the quality of healthcare education around the country.
“What I’ve always believed to be of greatest importance is giving people a system that’s stable and reliable and efficient. That drives everything DaVinci Education does.”
David started tinkering with computers in his teens, taking apart his first computer (an Apple II) and writing his own word processing program before embarking on more formal training in computer languages and programming. He has more than 25 years of experience in programming, network design, systems analysis, administration and project management. David has also served as an Invited Expert in the MedBiquitous Consortium, an international group whose members are seeking to develop and promote technology standards for the health professions that advance lifelong learning, continuous improvement, and better patient outcomes.
In between long sessions at the computer, David finds time to go for long runs. He’s completed five half-marathons and countless 5K and 10K races - and has the tshirts to show for it. Since his youth, David has always enjoyed writing short stories and may actually get around to submitting a few for publication some day.
