Dave is a featured speaker at conferences such as Opportunity Green, Global Clean Energy Congress and Net Impact, and is an expert applicant reviewer for the Department of Energy's Sunshot Incubator Program. He holds a BA from UCLA and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and Columbia Business School.
