Co-founder and General Partner at Metamorphic Ventures, David is a digital media veteran with 15 years of business development & operational experience.
Google brought on David as employee #2 in the New York HQ with just $3m in revenue. David then launched and spearheaded the company’s monetization strategy by co-founding Google’s Vertical Markets Group and wiring the regional sales team structure. For eight years, he oversaw cross-functional and cross-business responsibilities, all of which helped him to lead both Google’s culture committee and its recruiting initiative and subsequently hire many of the people who lead Google’s sales and business teams today.
David’s earlier experiences handling business development for Adsmart and Snowball during their critical growth stages have contributed to his sincere understanding of common founder challenges. David actively employs this empathy when helping young companies with monetization, BD, acquisition, hiring, and corporate culture development.
An active board member of Girls Who Code, The River Fund and The Sonima Foundation, David is also an advisor to the Israeli startup accelerator program IDC Elevator, the premier in-image advertising platform GumGum, and the content recommendation and monetization platform Taboola.
David graduated with a BA degree from the University of Maryland in 1992.
