David has been writing and learning about business, finance and globalization for a quarter-century, starting with a small New York consulting firm in the 1990s. He then transitioned into journalism and contributed to a slew of top global news outlets — The Economist, The New York Times, The Financial Times, Quartz, The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs and more — from nearly two dozen countries across Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia. His writing and reporting have focused on cities and sustainability, society and culture, women-owned businesses, the tech eco-system, higher education and more.In recent years, David has edited several non-fiction books, including a top Amazon seller about fixing democracy, and helped improve content creation for a number of tech and crypto firms. Since 2020 he has written a weekly column for Abu Dhabi-based newspaper The National, covering politics and economics across the broader Mediterranean region. His first book is set for publication in early 2023.

PERSONAL TIDBIT:
David is the seventh of eight children and grew up in a chaotic home filled with love — and great food. As a result, he loves to cook and spend quality time with friends and family. He is often traveling and is occasionally recognized as a former contestant on the Emmy-winning reality show The Amazing Race.
