Editorial Reviews

About the Author

David worked at Apple from 1984 until 2004. He was there to see the good, the bad, the ugly, and the insanely great. 

His first career was 10 years of raising purebred cattle. Running a large farm far from a safety net provided a great foundation for someone who would survive for so long in the high tech pressure cooker of Apple.  His farm was in Canada north of Fredericton, New Brunswick on the banks of the Tay River in what some would call wilderness.

Those first 30 years of David's professional life on the farm and as a Silicon Valley computer soldier forged his character. Life on the farm taught him that who you are is far more important than what you do. How much money one makes is not the measure in life which matters. How you treat others is far more important than any money one might make. 

Corporate life reinforced his belief that standing up for what is right is fundamental to any life of value.

Beyond that David is greatly influenced by where he now lives and believes that how we treat the coastal marsh is  a measure of how much we care for future generations.

David spends his life after Apple immersed in the extraordinary natural beauty of North Carolina's Southern Outer Banks. He can often be found walking the beaches or out on the water in his kayak or skiff chasing fish or a great sunset.  Photography is one of his great passions.

David has commented that by doing the right thing for the right reasons, enough money to get by seems to make it into his bank account. He counts himself blessed and sleeps well at night.
David's high school years were spent at McCallie School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Harvard College in 1971.  He was proud to apply the training he received from studying Colonial America History to his successful career of raising cattle.
Rumors that his book, The Pomme Company, is causing iPads running Kindle reader to overheat are unfounded.  According to David, users are holding their iPads incorrectly.

Dave Sobotta is a great writer with an intimate knowledge of the Crystal Coast area and its attractions. If you are thinking about a vacation on Emerald Isle and the Crystal Coast, this is well worth the money.
