David started working for Data Integrity Services as a contractor for a special project in 2013. He quickly pivoted into a full-time role with our helpdesk where he started absorbing as much new IT knowledge as he could. He embraced the Data Integrity values, and gained a reputation for writing overly verbose notes & emails. This proclivity for wordiness proved useful when it came to writing technical policies and procedures, a task which David has embraced wholeheartedly. After working his way up through the helpdesk, he is now heading that team as our Service Desk Manager.

David is a fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning, and enjoys video games, comic books, Lego, and all things Disney/Star Wars/Marvel.
