David has 34 years of experience in the Computer IT community. He graduated from University of Maryland - University College with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 1986. David started his computer career in 1982, at the age of 19, managing a microcomputer at Metropolitan Parts, the largest automotive parts wholesaler in the DC Metropolitan Area. David started his career in government contracting in 1986 by writing both the Operations and User manuals for the United States Information Agency IBM datacenter. He then coauthored the first GSA course in Computer Security in 1988.
In 1989, David designed and constructed his first commercial email gateway MBLink, providing a bridge between DEC-based email systems and cc:Mail. The key differentiator was that MBLink was the first gateway that did not require address registration. It algorithmically converted email addresses and would change the future of email integration.
