Top Customer Reviews
David was shy, but he flourished in an environment where he garnered respect from coders and engineers. They understood what he was talking about. Another change came when his mother "asked how he felt about going back to school that fall." Naturally school was something he could do without and she offered to homeschool him. David was tutored at home and was able to continue working on his internship. When he was sixteen, he was offered a part-time job with UrbanBaby. Little did they know that their "chief technology officer" was so young because they never met him.
An unexpected crisis in his personal life led to a move that would lead him to Tokyo, Japan. David continued to work for UrbanBaby, but finally the gig was up. They learned about his age and the fact that he was working from "home" half way across the world. Finally he returned to New York and "started his own consultant firm," Davidville. It was definitely a launching point for his own career.Read more ›
