Creativity & Innovation



Finance & Business Management

Innovation requires vision, intuition, courage and ability to see what others don’t see. Dave has them all.


When I met Dave in September of 2000, he talked for 12 hours about the impact of digitalization on the production and distribution of media. As a banker, I didn't know what the hell he was talking about - nor did anyone else. Over the next five years, we all found out.

Dave is who we all want to be - living his dream and actually changing the world every day with his gentle inspirational genius.

Visa International

Captain Dave is a dreamer and a fearless innovator, a visionary of high order, very delicately tractable on the surface but beneath that, he's a slamming, thumping, battering ram, very mystical but rational and sensitive when it comes to the hot irons of art forms. An explosive musician, deft guitar player, innately recognizes the genius in other people and puts it into play without being manipulative. With him, there's mercifully no reality to yesterday. He is incredibly gracious and soulful, can command the ship and steer the course, dragger, trawler or man of war, Captain Dave.
