Hey there, I’m David 👋

I write a weekly(ish) newsletter where I share lessons in community, business, and personal growth.

For the past 13 years, I’ve worked at the intersection of community and business.

In 2014, I cofounded CMX, a network of over 20,000 community professionals that we support with training, research, events, and community.

In 2019, CMX was acquired by Bevy, a software platform that powers community-driven events and virtual conferences, where I served as the VP of Community.

I recently stepped down from my role and took a 4-month sabbatical.

My book, The Business of Belonging (Wiley 2021) has sold over 10,000 copies and is a complete collection of everything I’ve learned about building a community strategy.

I also host a weekly podcast called Masters of Community where I interview the world’s top community builders and experts. The podcast is currently on pause, but I might bring it back soon if I’m feeling frisky.

You can follow me on Twitter and Linkedin where I regularly share lessons in community, business, and personal growth.

I speak, teach workshops, and consult regularly. If you’d like to work with me, please get in touch here.
