David started his career as an entrepreneur. Having founded multiple start-up internet companies, he helped develop the streaming media codec in Seattle. He then left the start-up world to create an arts, humanities, and VR curriculum for high school students. The curriculum later became the framework for a serious video game design program for at-risk teens. As an HP Teaching Fellow, David is excited to explore how teachers and students use emerging technologies to solve global challenges.
“I would like to have a student of mine tell me after 20 years about an impactful learning experience that he had had, and I think an example of that would be [that] currently we’re working with students in Lithuania that will allow our students here in Austin to collaborate and solve a global problem. And in doing so, students are going to find out what skills they have, and what tendencies they have that might lead them to a career based on their interests.”
