Born and raised in Queens, New York, David was an entrepreneur in grade school before he even knew what the word meant. From his earliest venture at 13 yrs old selling baseball cards at shows to opening a barber shop at the young age of 18, to now, David has become a visionary and serial entrepreneur, he has spent his 20+ year career devising innovative concepts that have shaken up multiple industries time and again. He is currently the Co-founder and Chief of Corporate Affairs for PLSAR, a global leader in the energy transition sector, helping to transition the marine and power industries into cleaner energy sources while removing and capturing millions of tons of Co2e in the process.
Media outlets such as Forbes Magazine, TechCrunch, Entrepreneur, and CNBC have all done features about him and his companies, covering his work as an entrepreneur, innovator, and technologist.
Born and raised in New York City, David currently resides with his wife and two daughters in Los Angeles California, where he is an in-demand public speaker, podcast guest, and advisor to global organizations.
In 2008, David founded MCG, the first security-based loan origination company. There, he aggregated multiple securities portfolios in order to empower borrowers and put them within reach of more favorable loan terms from all the major banks. Over the next two years, his firm grew at a breakneck pace, leading to the lucrative 2010 acquisition by RCG Private Equity.
After that acquisition, David shifted his attention to the mobile industry and co-founded two companies, the first was Glam Screen by Jonathan Cheban (FoodGod), where David and Jon made the mirrored screen protector (Glam Screen) they created, a viral sensation. The second was Moguls Mobile with FUBU founder and Shark Tank star Daymond John. Together, they developed and launched fashion-forward mobile accessories, many of which were the firsts of their kind, including the first virtual reality headset ever sold on television, debuting the headset on HSN in January 2015, and the first QWERTY keyboard case for iPhone.
