Dave leads Nanoracks strategy and major initiatives across the entire business.
Dave joined Nanoracks in March 2021, after working for us as an intern and then as a consultant. Dave was previously the Strategic Lead for the Outpost program where he helped secure multiple SBIR and STTR awards; established new partnerships across the Government, industry, and international partners; and coordinated congressional funding for the Mission Extension Kit.

He continues to aid his support to the execution of this project, leading the GWC as the Acting Director.
Prior to his time at Nanoracks, Dave spent a couple years at Booz Allen Hamilton as a strategy consultant, working primarily for the Department of Defense.
