Hi, my name is David (pronounced Daveed) and I’m a half-Portuguese, half-American guy living a life intertwined between the personal and the professional. I’m basically vulnerable about the good, the bad and the ugly as I share about the role of a husband, father and professional. I’m a communicator at heart and enjoy each opportunity to learn and share from my own experiences.
