ABOUT David

A  lifelong product nut, David has been making and building products for himself and others since he was 7 years old when he constructed a homemade cannon in the family's backyard shed.  He created and sold his first video game at 16 and at 23 he created a new retail financial instrument for Royal Bank of Canada: LEOs, Limited Expiry Options.


In the last 20 years David has led two software studios designing and building award winning products. He services a wide range of companies that are looking to bring new apps to market.
