Dave started coding at the ripe old age of 8. After college and a few career moves, he joined John Bechard’s team as a database developer/architect at Gift Card Solutions, from 2002-2007. At GCS, Dave engineered and developed all of the gift-card related services: PCI-compliant transactions, financial reporting/reconciliation, ETL automation, data/networking connections, account management/reporting web portal, and custom web pages for customers. Dave joined forces with John Bechard again at Piracle, as a Cloud Architect, from 2010-2014. While there, he helped design and transition their flagship product from a desktop application to a cloud-based application.
